In 2023, McDonald's Will Serve the 7 Healthiest Foods

Opt for the grilled chicken sandwich instead of the crispy version to reduce the calorie and fat content. Pair it with whole-grain bun for added fiber.

Grilled Chicken Sandwich

McDonald's offers a side salad with mixed greens, tomatoes, and carrots. Choose a lighter dressing, such as vinaigrette, and use it sparingly.

Side Salad

This breakfast option features an egg white patty, Canadian bacon, and a slice of white cheddar cheese on an English muffin. It's a healthier alternative to other breakfast sandwiches.

Egg White Delight McMuffin

As a side option for kids' meals or a la carte, McDonald's offers pre-cut apple slices that provide a serving of fruit.

Apple Slices

This salad includes grilled chicken, mixed greens, grape tomatoes, and a blend of lettuce. Opt for a lighter dressing and avoid high-calorie toppings.

Artisan Grilled Chicken Salad

Made with low-fat vanilla yogurt, layered with fresh berries and granola, this option can satisfy your sweet tooth while providing some nutrients.

Fruit 'N Yogurt Parfait

While not the most exciting choice, a plain hamburger without cheese or special sauces is a relatively lower-calorie option on the menu.


The Filet-O-Fish sandwich features a breaded fish patty, tartar sauce, and cheese on a bun. It can be a better alternative to higher-calorie options if you enjoy seafood.
