Burger King and McDonald’s seem to have two of the healthier options in fish sandwiches, but you always have to take size into account. Eating small portions is always a healthy idea, but if you have to eat two or three of a smaller sandwich to get full, it may be better for your health and wallet to get just one of the bigger sandwiches. Make your own judgment based on what you want to avoid or have more of with your nutrition.
