MIAMI (AP) - Burger King is promising to offer healthier fare
The fast-food chain says it plans to sell and market
flame-broiled Chicken Tenders and apples cut to resemble thick-cut
french fries. The company will continue to offer its fried Chicken
Tenders on its menu.
Burger King says it's building a Kids Meal that will contain the
flame-broiled Tenders, organic unsweetened applesauce and low-fat
milk, for a total of 305 calories and eight and a-half grams of
fat. It will be available in restaurants sometime next year. One
clinical nutritionist says "It's a good trend."
Burger King also sells salads and has a veggie burger.
One nutritionist calls the move "a good trend" but says the
ultimate solution is to "eat less fast food."
