McDonald's Canada Responds to Study

    Re: Study: University of Calgary, Department of Psychology

    TORONTO, April 24 /CNW/ - While we appreciate ongoing health and wellness
research, we're disappointed that this preliminary study does not tell the
whole nutrition story at McDonald's and makes broad conclusions based on only
one combination of menu items.
    At McDonald's Canada, we're proud of our food and have been a leader in
serving quality breakfast options for more than 30 years. We have always
believed in the sound nutritional principles of balance, variety and
moderation and that McDonald's can be part of any balanced, active lifestyle.
    The breakfast combination used in the report provides only a small
example of a much larger menu from which to choose. For example, many of our
customers do enjoy a balanced breakfast consisting of an Egg McMuffin, Fruit
'n Yogurt Parfait and small orange juice, all of which combine elements from
the four food groups and fall within recommended daily values as outlined in
Canada's Food Guide.
    We're always listening to our customers and have been a leader in
providing them with complete nutrition information, both in our restaurants
and online at, to help them make responsible choices that are
right for them and their lifestyles.
