Fast food chains have undergone many menu changes in recent years to accommodate a healthier lifestyle. In September, McDonald's will begin taking healthier strides by offering apples instead of fries as a Happy Meal option. They also aim to reduce their sodium, added sugar, saturated fat and calories by the year 2020.
Burger King also tried new menu items such as their bacon sundae earlier this year. The second largest burger chain has jumped on board to create healthier choices by adding sweet potato fries, barbeque sandwiches, and frozen lemonade to their menu.
McDonald's Restaurants holds nearly 50 percent of the market share of all ten popular U.S. burger chains.
