Not sure who they think they're kidding.
McDonald's teams up with Weight WatchersMcDonald's has reportedly signed a deal with Weight Watchers to promote some of its meals as suitable for dieters, including Chicken McNuggets.
The three meals marked with the Weight Watchers logo will go on sale in New Zealand on Wednesday and are expected in Australian outlets later this year, the Sydney Morning Herald reports.
As part of the deal, McDonald's will use the Weight Watchers logo on its menu boards and Weight Watchers will promote McDonald's to dieters.
The three meals include nuggets, Fillet-O-Fish and sweet chilli chicken wraps, the paper said.
Boyd Swinburn, from the Australian Society for the Study of Obesity at Deakin University, described the move as a marketing ploy.
"Make no mistake, this is about selling more burgers and fries," he told the paper.
"Mum can go in and feel good about her Weight Watchers meal while she buys the kids burgers. Anyone who thinks otherwise is naive."
