McDonald’s is certainly taking the Olympic motto to heart by building its largest restaurant ever for the 2012 Summer Games in London. The 32,000 square foot monstrosity is just one of four new locations the burger giant will use to serve the sports-loving fans who flock to the city. The restaurant expects to serve a mound of fast food over the nearly month-long Games. Early projections include 50,000 Big Macs, more than 100,000 portions of fries and 30,000 milkshakes.
But British health officials don’t think there’s anything happy about these meals.
“Given the huge public health issues of childhood obesity,” said parliament health committee member Grahame Morris in a statement, “it is legitimate to question whether having the world’s biggest McDonald’s at the Olympic Park is sending an appropriate message to our young people.”
