The food giant has asked its staff to eat healthier food including salad and sandwiches.

Implicitly asserting that people working with McDonalds must not eat the food they serve, the fast-food giant’s resources site shows graphics depicting the ‘unhealthy choice’ and the ‘healthier choice’. McDonalds own food is in the forum column.

The post, located in the site’s ‘Health Encyclopedia’ section, states, “While convenient and economical for a busy lifestyle, fast foods are typically high in calories, fat, saturated fat, sugar, and salt and may put people at risk for becoming overweight.”

Despite featuring a vast array of deep fried delicacies, the Golden Arches reminds employees that ‘avoiding items that are deep fried are your best bet.’ It further advices them to ‘limit the extras such as cheese, bacon and mayonnaise.’

Meanwhile, McDonalds defended the content in a statement by highlighting the new, healthier menu options that the fast food giant has added in the recent years, like egg whites and fruit smoothies.

McDonald's CEO Don Thompson had earlier in May defended the company's food during a shareholders meeting, saying "We don't sell junk food."
