A Few of My Favorite Things~McDonald's Oatmeal *UPDATE*
About a week ago I wrote about McDonalds' new oatmeal HERE, which I am in love with. Today, I recevied a message from McDonalds' public relations department. They had run across my post, noticed that I had not been able to come up with nutrition information and kindly provided it for us.
"Since you asked about the nutritional information, I thought I would send it along to you and your readers. One complete serving of the product contains 260 calories and 4 grams of fat."
Not bad...at all.
I'm thrilled to find out that this item is as healthy as I thought it was. :)
Thanks for the info, Jaime (and, thanks for the offer for a free cup of oatmeal!)
So, when you are sick of cake, pie, cookies and fudge after the holiday binge...run out to McDonalds and get something healthy...Fruit and Maple Oatmeal.
****This is an update as of May 15, 2011. I've had lots of questions about how differing variations on the oatmeal affect the nutritional value. Please understand that the original post on this was written over a year and a half ago while this product was being tested in my area for potential national coverage. I am personally glad that they decided to keep the oatmeal. But...they've tweaked it some since this post was written. I doubt that the nutritional facts here will mirror what you can find on the company website. For nutrition facts on the current product, please check out the McDonald's website. Thanks! ~Amy****
