Looking for a healthy snack or treat at McDonalds?

One of my go to desserts is the Vanilla Reduced Fat Ice Cream Cone at McDonalds (150 calories)

Another new favorite is the Fruit 'n Yogurt Parfait with or without granola (130 calories without and 160 calories with granola).

If you HAVE to have a McFlurry and you are trying to avoid "extra" calories, at least trade down from the regular 12-ounce size to a snack size McFlurry (7.3 ounces).

The calories go from 580 to 340 for the Oreo McFlurry and 710 to 430 for the M&M McFlurry. Fat grams go from 19 to 12 for the Oreo McFlurry and 25 to 16 for the M&M McFlurry.

Elaine,

On one of those "Eat this not that" threads it said that Sonic's Jr. banana split was OK, too. I know your thread is about Mikey D's, but I just recalled that one.

It's all about choices.

Who came up with "Super-size" anyway???
