Healthiest Sandwiches on the Wendy's Menu

Hint: It’s not the Baconator

The Jr. Cheeseburger contains just 290 calories.

The Wendy’s menu is a bit more straightforward than that of rival McDonald’s, which seems to be throwing everything at the wall to see what sticks these days. They have a bunch of salads, chicken nuggets, sides, sandwiches, and Frostys, and new menu items tend to generally just be limited-time releases or the addition of new components, like pretzel buns, to existing items. There aren’t hundreds of sandwich options, but when it comes time to take your pick, the healthiest ones aren’t entirely obvious.
