McDonald's CEO Insists: We Don't Sell Junk Food

by at . Comments

During McDonald's annual shareholders meeting last week, CEO Don Thompson found himself forced to defend the company's menu options.

To a nine-year old girl.

Asked why the global chain didn't offer more healthy recipes and items, Thompson responded to the inquisitive young lady by saying the restaurant isn't as bad for you as many seem to believe.

"We don't sell junk food," Thompson said. "My kids also eat McDonald's... We serve a lot of foods and veggies at McDonald's and are trying to sell even more with the apples that we introduced into the Happy Meal."

During the same gathering, Thompson was asked by a doctor to stop marketing to children, which led to another defense from the CEO.

"We provide high quality food. We always have; it's real beef, it's real chicken, it's real tomatoes, real lettuce, real fruit, real smoothies, real dairy, real eggs, and we do it in a way that is also affordable," he said.

Do you agree with this assessment? Does McDonald's sell junk food?

One of the provisions in ObamaCare is a mandate for restaurant chains to publish the nutrient information of their menu. McDonald's has already done it and should receive credit for it. I also think that the parents need to take the responsibility for the healthy nutrition of their children. McDonald's is a for-profit corporation and a decision to offer healthier menu items depends on having a customer demand for these items. So if the parents can convince their children to eat healthier, the demand for healthier menu and food items will increase, and supply by restaurants and food manufacturers will follow.

So basically the CEO of McDonald's is a liar. Which, as a consumer, it makes you wonder what else McDonald's is lying about. PS - 0% of the population goes to McDonald's for their apples.
