As the fast food industry began leaning toward healthier menu choices, McDonald's limped into 2003 with falling global sales. But in a move that forecasted the restaurant's (somewhat) recent health-conscious transformation, Mickey D's began using white meat instead of dark meat in its chicken nuggets, eliminating 50 calories and four grams of fat from each six-piece meal. According to sales records quoted by Bloomberg, the restaurant's new nuggets never missed a step, and McDonald's went on to offer salads, milk and apple slices as side-menu alternatives.
