Once, you’ve scanned the nutrition information, you may still be curious about the menu and how to eat healthy at KFC. Though fried chicken and hearty sides are not known for being nutritious meals, there are always ways to get creative and order items that fit within nutritional guidelines.

Naturally, many of Kentucky Fried Chicken’s foods are high in sodium. However, you can find a few foods that are low calorie, like a serving or two of the grilled chicken, as well as a side of green beans, corn, or salad. Look for items that are not fried, but are grilled or baked if you are concerned about calories, saturated fat, and sodium. If you choose a sauce for your meat, opt for a lighter one like BBQ, honey, or sweet-n-tangy. You can also avoid high calorie and carb counts by choosing a couple pieces of chicken over a sandwich.

When selecting a drink or dessert to go with your meal, the main value to pay attention to is sugar. Both of these items tend to contain excess grams of sugar, so it is a good idea to check the nutrition guide if this is something you are concerned about.
