Want to know about the McDonald’s Salad Medley?

Recently, they’ve added baby spinach, baby kale, romaine & red leaf lettuce to their salad blend. Their premium salads offer at least 2.5 cups of vegetables. That’s a lot of green!

New Chicken Antibiotics Policy

In March of 2015, McDonald’s committed to source chickens not treated with antibiotics important to human medicine* in two years’ time. They are proud to say that they fulfilled that promise for their chicken nearly a year ahead of schedule.

*Farmers still use ionophores, a class of antibiotics that are not prescribed to people, to help keep chickens healthy.

A Global Commitment to Sustainable Beef

Burgers are an integral part of the McDonald’s menu, but that’s just one of the reasons they’re on a journey to advance more sustainable beef production. They’re striving to improve environmental practices in how beef is produced, make a positive difference in the lives of farmers, and to drive improvements in animal health and welfare. By joining forces with their partners, their goal is to influence industry-wide changes on a global scale.

Milk From Cows not Treated with rbST

The milk they use in their low-fat white Milk Jugs, fat-free chocolate Milk Jugs and Go-Gurt® Low Fat strawberry yogurt comes from cows that are not treated with rbST, an artificial growth hormone*.

*No significant difference has been shown between milk derived from rbST-treated and non-rbST-treated cows.

Back to Basics

McDonald’s food philosophy is – The Simpler The BetterTM, and their menu shows it with ingredients like real butter on their breakfast items. Or, their Artisan Grilled Chicken: it’s made with 100% grilled chicken breast filet and simple ingredients you’d find in your pantry. Even their tasty Buttermilk Crispy Chicken embraces batter with real buttermilk. Simply delicious.

Commitment to Cage-Free Eggs

They’re proud of their commitment to only source cage-free eggs by 2025 in the US and Canada, a commitment that has had a ripple effect throughout the industry. Today, McDonald’s USA already purchases more than 13 million cage-free eggs each year, some of which are used in their freshly-cracked Egg McMuffin®.

Make sure to snag your tickets to this event, here! We have very limited space for this event and remember, the 1st 20 moms {or dads} through the door will get a backpack!
