Burger King latest to offer "healthier" menu items

RestaurantsDining and DrinkingCookingBurger KingJay LenoSalma Hayek

The home of the Whopper is adding fruit smoothies, snack wraps and an array of salads to its menu in what it says is a strategy to offer better-for-you food choices.

Burger King joinsMcDonald's, Chik-fil-A and other fast food restaurants that have tried to offer healthier fare to their menus.

Burger King said it is the broadest menu change in its 58-year history.

The new menu is being promoted in a series of commercials that feature celebrities like singer Mary J. Blige, actress Salma Hayek, talk show host Jay Leno and David Beckham.

But don't let Beckham and his rock hard abs be the one to convince you to order the new smoothie, or any other new menu item.

Make sure you check the ingredient menu to see if healthy is really healthy.
