McDonald’s McResources website for their employees is dispensing more healthy information. Earlier this year, the website offered some valuable suggestions to employees. Like, “breaking food into pieces” to feel full on less food, singing away their stress, and taking two vacations to help decrease their risk of heart attack. It also suggests employees return unopened holiday gifts they may not need, or sell them, for some “quick cash.”
The most recent suggestion the site offers is a bit ironic. McResources is now telling people to lay off the fast food!
Oh, look at that image above. It’s clearly an “unhealthy” McDonald’s meal.
“It is hard to eat a healthy diet when you eat at fast-food restaurants often,” the site goes on to say. “Many foods are cooked with a lot of fat, even if they are not trans fats. Many fast-food restaurants do not offer any lower-fat foods. Large portions also make it easy to overeat. And most fast food restaurants do not offer many fresh fruits and vegetables.”
McDonald’s employees, stay away from McDonald’s!
“In general,” the site suggests, “eat at places that offer a variety of salads, soups, and vegetables.”
McDonald’s defended the posting in a statement issued Monday afternoon.
“Portions of this website continue to be taken entirelyout of context,” McDonald’s statement said. “This website provides useful information from respected third-parties about many topics, among them health and wellness. It also includes information from experts about healthy eating and making balanced choices. McDonald’s agrees with this advice.”
