I wish Burger King would make over its menu to include more healthful options.
A little whole grain in the buns would be a good start. They should follow the
lead of New York City and put the calorie counts on the menu and on the
packaging. They should offer better beverage options for kids. Seriously, no
child under 18 should be drinking soda anyway. A mixture of 25% real fruit
juice and sparkling water is a great subsitute. For some reason
unknown to me kids seem to love bits of chicken parts deep fried in fat and
dipped in sugar saturated sauces. The sauces would be a good place to start
improving their eating habits. What about Burger Kind offering some healthful
sauce choices without all the high-fructose corn syrup? This is the
fattest industrialized nation in the world with nearly the lowest life
expectancy rates. I don't care if the restaurant is painted in pretty colours
only if it serves decent food.
