SAN DIEGO – Jan. 3, 2011 – McDonald’s has long been a destination for the hungry and on the go, and San Diego McDonald’s restaurants are continuing to add variety and value to the menu with new Fruit & Maple Oatmeal.

Fruit & Maple Oatmeal is made with whole grains and topped with fruit – including fresh apples, juicy raisins and tangy cranberries – maple brown sugar and a touch of cream. Two servings of whole grains and one-half cup of fruit make this breakfast item an excellent source of fiber, vitamin C and iron. At just 290 calories per serving, Fruit & Maple Oatmeal is a delicious and nutritious menu option available all day.
