According to a new report on eating patterns in Canada, breakfast sandwiches were the second fastest growing menu item last year, included in 1/3 of all breakfast occasions — and restaurant breakfast-sandwich sales in Canada have grown 12 per cent since 2013. Unfortunately, many popular options feature more than half a day’s recommended intake of saturated fat and sodium.
In the following Unhealthiest Food segment, we’ve rounded up the unhealthiest breakfast sandwiches offered at 6 top fast food service chains in Canada: Tim Hortons, McDonald’s, Subway, Starbucks, A&W, and Burger King. On a 2,000 calorie per day diet, the daily recommended intake for the average Canadian adult is about 65 grams of fat (no more than 20 grams saturated), and between 1,500 – 2,400 mg of sodium, so we’ve also rounded up some healthier alternatives.
