As usual when this crap comes up, I'm going to say that McDonald's has a whole bunch of reasonably healthy food options and does a really good job of providing for a huge array of dietary sensibilities. And their coffee tastes better than Starbucks.

I keep hearing people say this, so I looked at their menu on their website and found you could actually get 1% milk and a side salad.  That qualifies as "a whole bunch"?

Everything else had a ton of sodium and/or fat.

I also suspect the pictures were not to scale since the side salad looked as big as all the other salads.

Who the hell goes to McDonald's for salad?

B&E McMuffin, hashbrown and small coffee for $4.95. Healthy? Good enough for once a week. Tasty? You betcha. Highly profitable? Dunno but I help where I can.  Also, $1.49 for a coffee and muffins is a sweet deal. If the muffin weren't like 56g of fat each, I'd be much healthier/happier.

I do. Salads (vinaigrette dressing has 35 calories), apple slices, unsweeted tea and the occasional grilled chicken wrap. A happy meal is probably also a responsible amount of food for me, but I only get those when the toys are cool.

There really isn't any other fast food company doing as much as McDonalds to offer healthy food, and certainly no other big chain is going to have that food available so consistently.

McDonalds isn't meant to be for every meal. With the logic some people use you'd never be allowed to eat ice cream because you'd get fat if that's all you ate.

Which fast food place do you go to for a salad?

If I am going to eat healthy food, I will go to local pizza place and hit their salad bar. I'll load up my plate with the usual salad fare and add a big gob of moz, and pile on the sliced pepperoni, then slather on the Italian dressing. It's healthy, because it's a salad, so I'm ok, and it's only $8, with a slice of pizza.
