McDonald’s is trying to change its junk food image by offering healthier options, like fruit smoothies.

“We are excited to introduce the new McCafé Mango Pineapple Real Fruit Smoothie featuring real mango and pineapple tastes, two favorites with Latinos,” said Cristina Alfaro, Public Relations Manager, McDonald’s USA. “The blend of these two exotic fruit flavors create a delicious cold beverage perfect to enjoy on warm summer days like this.”

Chabán, whose book “From Fatty to Hottie” tells the story of how he went from being an overweight kid to an athletic heartthrob, encouraged fans and followers at the event to continue working towards their healthy lifestyle goals.

“I have always said that healthy eating habits are about the decisions we make, not the places where we go to get our food,” said Chabán at McDonald’s Summer Fiesta. “I want Latino kids to improve their health and happiness back by learning about nutrition and how to make the right choices when eating.”
