How Can I Build a Balanced Lifestyle?

To have a healthy body, we should maintain a balanced diet and exercise regularly. McDonald’s strongly believes the food we provide should be both delicious and good for health, so we are always committed to providing nutritious and high quality food.

Besides healthy eating habits, a good exercise routine is also important for maintaining good health. To achieve that, we have prepared some exercise tips for you. Taking pride in our corporate social responsibility and constantly looking for ways to give back to the local community, McDonald’s has been organizing Kidathon since 2005 to raise funds for Ronald McDonald House Charities to help children and families in need. Aside from enjoying delicious food, let’s also engage in healthy activities to live a balanced active life!

Balanced Diet


Balance diet is the key of maintaining one's health. McDonald's® customers are encouraged to plan meals according to the food pyramid, which stipulates a range of recommended servings among all the groups as well as within each group. No single food or group of foods provides all the nutrients a person needs.

Regular Exercise


Regular exercise can consume extra energy that would otherwise be converted into undesirable fat accumulating in our bodies. It can also increase metabolism rate and enhance the health of our muscle, skeleton and the cardio-respiratory system.

In order to keep a habit of regular exercise in daily busy life, you may try to:

  • Do at least 3.5 hours of physical exercise every week. You may do the exercise for half an hour everyday, exercise for one hour every other day, or accumulate the timing of exercise to half an hour everyday (each exercise shouldn't last less than 10 minutes)

  • Walking up staircases more often rather than using escalators when going to work or coming back to home.

  • Walk more rather than taking vehicles when going out.

  • Try to spend less time sitting watching TV or using computer, but see spare time as a great opportunity for outdoor activities.
