Want a side salad with that Big Mac?

 

McDonald's says it will start giving customers the choice of a salad, fruit or vegetable as a substitute for french fries in its value meals.

The world's biggest hamburger chain was set to make the announcement at the Clinton Global Initiative in New York City, where CEO Don Thompson was slated to speak.

 

The fast-food company also said it would use the packaging for its Happy Meals to promote healthier options. It said all advertising to kids will include a "fun nutrition or children's well-being" message.

 

The changes come as McDonald's faces criticism from health advocates who say it promotes bad eating habits. McDonald's, based in Oak Brook, Ill., is also trying to shake its fast-food image to keep up with shifting tastes.
