New Delhi: McDonald's doesn't think its staff should eat the food they serve.


The fast food chain has advised its employees to avoid meals with burgers and fries and to eat healthier options like salad and sandwiches.

"Fast foods are almost always high in calories, fat, sugar, and salt," reads one post, which was first discovered by CNBC. "Some fast-food restaurants still use hydrogenated vegetable oils for frying. These oils contain trans fats, which increase your risk for heart disease. Some cities have banned or are trying to ban the use of trans fats."

The advice was dispensed on the now-infamous McResource Line, the employees-only website that has told workers to avoid fast food altogether for people with high blood pressure, diabetes and heart disease.

In another post, a picture of French fries and a hamburger resembling a Big Mac is labeled an "unhealthy choice."

"In general, avoiding items that are deep fried are your best bet. Healthier choices include sandwiches that can be loaded with vegetables. Limit the extras such as cheese, bacon, and mayonnaise."

The site also drew criticism last month for advising employees to return holiday gifts to get out of debt.
