Share it now.

McDonald's, the world's second largest fast-food chain behind Subway, took the initiative in becoming the first chain to post the calories of its hamburgers, fries, and other food items at restaurants and drive-thrus nationwide.

The move to publicize the calories of food items was a way to help educate customers, according to Jan Fields, president of McDonald's USA.

Now diners can easily find out that one Big Mac has 540 calories, while the Baked Apple Pie packs 250 calories. Be sure to check out these treats on Bon'App to find out other important nutrients, such as sugar, salt, and bad fat! Also, sign up today to view the amount of fiber and protein as well.
