On April 19, 2013, Yumi Media, a food website devoted to delivering the latest and greatest in food news, recipes, and products to incorporate into your own healthy lifestyle, commented on a recent Delaware Online article highlighting the new changes to Taco Bell’s menu options to promote healthier choices.
According to the Delaware Online article, Taco Bell is looking to change the publics view of them, moving away form the fourth meal idea, and providing a healthier option for customers. The article stated, “By 2020, Taco Bell says 20 percent of its combo meals will meet nutritional guidelines for calories and fat set out by the federal government.”
The article goes further into explaining how customer’s tastes and demands constantly change and how many companies have begun to introduce the healthier options that Taco Bell is looking to match. McDonalds was one of the fast food chains to include healthier options. They feature chicken wraps and are even adding an egg McMuffin with egg whites on a wholegrain muffin, to the breakfast menu.
Greg Creed CEO of Taco Bell stated, “We’re not going to walk away from who Taco Bell is,” but they do have “a role to play in providing more balanced food choices.”
“It’s really great to see that fast food companies are trying to encourage healthier eating habits,” says Yumi Media representative Justin Maas. “It also makes it a lot easier for someone to pick up food on the run when there are more items to choose from. Maybe these companies will start exploring adding vegetarian options like Quorn, to their menu as well,” adds Maas.
