They actually have a “Favorites Under 400” menu that is designed to help those that may be counting calories still enjoy a meal away from home.
Customers may be surprised when they hear about the calorie counts of some of their favorite McDonald’s options. “Favorites Under 400” supports McDonald’s ongoing commitment to provide nutritional menu options and accessible information to empower our customers and employees to make choices that are right for their nutrition needs.

Some of the favorite meal items featured on this menu include:
- Filet o Fish Sandwich
