'Healthy' drink launched by McDonald's9th May 2012
McDonald’s has come under criticism from health experts over its plans to introduce a "healthy" drink for children.
The food outlet chain claims its new fizzy drink will offer children one of their five-a-day portions of fruit and vegetables but it contains 49 grams of sugar and 200 calories.
McDonald’s said the drink contains no added sugars, artificial colours or flavours and blends 60% fruit juice from grapes, apples and raspberries with natural sparkling water. Tam Fry of the National Obesity Forum said: “For a drink purporting to be healthy having this much sugar is appalling.”
