McDonald’s Set Meals Under 500 Calories

McDonald’s has been a big part of our lives, being a mainstay in the birthday parties when we were young and late-night suppers when we are older. However, in the recent decade, the emergence of choosing healthier food has a lot of people joining the healthy bandwagon. Fast food restaurants like McDonald’s has been providing healthier fast food options to keep up with the trend ever since. McDonald’s has made the nutritional information known and it is actually possible to pick a combination that is under 500 calories to debug the myth that fast food is a high caloric affair. Did you know that a large serving of the world-famous French Fries (463kcal) is almost equivalent to a Double Cheeseburger (443kcal)?

Here are our top 5 picks for McDonald’s meals that are below 500 calories which are conveniently available via Grabfood’s Mcdonald’s delivery service:
