Best Choice:   Junior Hamburger and Kid's French Fry

When you decide to cave and go for a burger and fries because you just can't eat another wilted salad topped with rubbery grilled chicken and low-fat vinaigrette on the side, Wendy's has the solution for you. While they have other healthy options like apple slices, baked potatoes, low-fat chili, and yes, that grilled chicken topped salad, they also offer a lower calorie burger and fry options. Pass on the triple decker with cheese and opt for a Junior Hamburger for just 250 calories and the Value or Kid's French Fry for 230 calories.
