Fast Food Oatmeal

McDonald’s Fruit & Maple Oatmeal

McDonald’s Fruit & Maple Oatmeal (9.2 ounces) delivers 290 calories, 4.5 g fat, 1.5 g saturated fat, 160 mg sodium, 5 g fiber, 5 g protein. It’s made with a combination of instant and slower-cooked oats.

The extra calories and sodium are in the toppings and mix-ins (sweetened dried fruit, brown sugar and cream). Make it a little healthier by skipping the brown sugar—you’ll save 30 calories and 45 mg of sodium. Though calorie-wise it's not too far off from an Egg McMuffin, oatmeal delivers half the total fat and saturated fat 4.5 and 1.5 grams, respectively, compared to 12 and 5 in the McMuffin.In fact, the oatmeal contains the least amount of fat of any other item on the McDonald’s breakfast menu. You also get 3 more grams of fiber and 660 milligrams less sodium from the oatmeal.
