Eating a good breakfast is the best way to start the day. Burger King offers a wide variety of choices, some way better than others. We love their French toast sticks dunked in syrup (25g of sugar!) but there are better options. Hint: Anytime a fast food restaurant uses these words; “ultimate, enormous, double, triple or decadent,” you can skip right past that item!
We like to order from the kids’ menu whenever we can. They usually have less sodium, fat and sugar. And, sometimes it comes with an action figure!
