It is a nice thought but unfortunately these healthy additions are not as healthy as these companies say they are. What if i told you that a Wendy's Garden Sensations Mandarin Chicken Salad had more calories, more fat, more carbs and more sugar than a Double Stack, or that a McDonald's Crispy Bacon Ranch salad has 51 grams of fat and 661 calories.

Their Fruit & Maple Oatmeal actually contains more sugar than a Snickers bar and only 10 fewer calories than an Egg McMuffin.
