McDonald's, an Industry Leader of Health? #McDTour #Sponsored

I went behind the scenes, to the mysterious beyond (behind the counter of McDonald's)


on the McDonald's Field to Restaurant Tour


I am being compensated by McDonald’s for my participation in this campaign as part of the Mom It Forward BloggerNetwork. Regardless, I always give my honest opinions. Full disclosure here.

On Friday Sept 19th I documented my adventure with McDonald's via Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram 
 with hashtag #McDTour

First I met a group of bloggers and other professionals at a McDonald's restaurant for breakfast.

As a busy mom, I'll only cook easy recipes with a few ingredients, but I still want delicious, well balanced, healthy meals for my family. 

For some, a great steak and pasta dinner may sound daunting, but it's really quick and easy!

The Secret World Behind McDonald's #McDTour #sponsored


The Secret World Behind McDonald's #McDTour #sponsored I have never been a fan of fast food. 

I grew up eating pretty healthy and maybe that is why I never acquired a taste for burgers and fried food. In high school I even wrote McDonald's a letter as part of a school debate assignment, telling them all the reasons I thought they did more bad than good and accused them of contributing to America's obesity problem and deforestation.

I was surprised when they actually answered


They included a whole packet of information on charities they started and/or support, such as the Ronald McDonald House. There were tons of great things they were doing, even if they still didn't offer the healthiest foods at that time (in 2011 they signed aSustainable Land Management Commitment’ to decrease their impact on forests, fyi). That was a big eye opener for me, not only learning that I need to look into an issue in detail before jumping to conclusions, but to encourage improvement rather than send hate mail. 

I have thus far turned down any blogging offers to promote fast food, but this time I was specifically asked to learn about the nutritional foods that McDonald's has added to their menu and plans to grow their healthy selections in the near future

This is something I definitely want to encourage! 

 

What persuaded me most to get involved?
