McDonald's announced it will end its supersize fries and beverage options in all restaurants by the end of this year, though it will occasionally bring back the 42-oz. drink as a promotion. A company spokesman says the move "has as much to do with operations as it does with emphasizing a balanced diet." The supersize menu has been a subject of attack in the obesity battle, and McDonald's has recently added salads and yogurt to its menu to increase healthy-eating options.
