It’s no secret that “McDonald’s” and “healthy” aren’t exactly synonymous. But if you find yourself at the fast-food chain, it’s important to know that not all menu items are created equal. Although you won’t find a healthy, nutritious meal or snack at McDonald’s, registered dietitians and nutritionists agree that there’s one food to avoid at all costs: the McFlurry. And between the McFlurry options, the M&M flavor is the worst offender.
According to the nutrition information from the McDonald’s website, a regular-sized M&M McFlurry clocks in at 640 calories. It also contains 21 grams of fat, which is 31% of the recommended daily value. And the amount of saturated and trans fat in the McFlurry takes up a whopping 67% of the recommended daily value.
