Their oatmeal contains 290 calories, 10 calories less than a cheeseburger or Egg McMuffin. Without the brown sugar it still contains more calories than a McDonalds hamburger. It contains as much sugar as a Snickers bar, and it has 21 ingredients, including natural flavor, barley malt extract and caramel color. It also comes with cream, which contains 7 of the ingredients (2 are dairy).
Thanks to Mark Bittman, NY times food columnist and food expert, for putting some heat on McDonalds for this decision!
