GIVEAWAY: WIN McDonald's Favorites Under 400 Calories Menu FREE Food Coupons - ENDS 10/26 (CLOSED)

McDonald's strives to have more healthy menu choices...

While I was attending the BlogHer conference back in August, I attended a breakfast with 50 bloggers as part of a "McDonald's Listening Tour" with McDonald's President Janice Fields. Ms. Fields took candid questions from bloggers as we tried out some of the more healthy McDonald's breakfast choices.

The main concerns of most of the moms was not for McDonald's to rid their menu of every high calorie item, but to have menu choices for everyone - whether for people who are watching their weight, or sodium intake, or for children with food allergies.

So McDonald's has committed to a number of nutrition initiatives which include the following -

- Automatically include produce or low-fat dairy in each Happy Meal

- Develop additional vegetable fruit or low-fat dairy choices for the Happy Meal and roll out over the next few years

- Reduce sodium by an average of 15 percent overall across entire menu, excluding beverages by 2015

- Reduce added sugars, saturated fat and calories with varied portion sizes, reformulations and innovations by 2020

McDonald's Favorites Under 400 Calories Menu
For those looking to watch their weight, McDonald's is marketing their "Favorites Under 400 Calories" Menu. All 5000 BlogHer conference attendees were given a set of FREE product coupons so that we could try out a Premium Chicken Sandwich (350 calories), Egg McMuffin (300 calories) and the Fruit 'N Yogurt Parfait (150 calories).

This is my menu favorite - Fruit 'N Yogur Parfait
My favorite out of all the menu items was the Fruit 'N Yogurt Parfait. I could not believe that it is only 150 calories because it is totally delicious. And not only can you have it for breakfast, but it is available on the McDonald's menu all day long so I have also ordered it as a snack to eat after dinner.

This was my first time eating an Egg McMuffin - and I enjoyed it 
My second favorite is the Egg McMuffin. Believe it or not, I had never tried an Egg McMuffin before so I did not know what to expect. It was very good and it was again hard for me to believe the low calorie count.
