McDonald's Vs. Sodexo: Round 1

Below you'll find just a small comparison of Sodexo nutrition facts vs. McDonald's. I only chose meals that were a direct comparison.  I used the McDonald's nutrition information on their website and the information on the MyFitnessPal app as sources. I am in no way qualified or an expert on nutrition, but just used the information provided by each of these food services to write this post.

Classic Cheeseburger

               Sodexo Cheeseburger (4 oz)              McDonald's Cheeseburger (4 oz)

                    Protein: 29 grams                                             Protein: 24 grams

There were  plenty other eye opening Sodexo meals that I would have liked to share on here, but did not because McDonald's does not serve anything similar to it (1 meat lasagna square from Sodexo is 950 CALORIES...crazy, I know).  I'm currently working on doing a comparison of Sodexo and some other local fast food places, so stay tuned for those!
