Dairy Queen is a chain of soft-serve ice cream and fast-food restaurants known for its Blizzards, ice cream cakes, and burgers.
While Dairy Queen has some healthier options like grilled chicken sandwiches and salads, many of its menu items are high in calories, fat, sugar, and sodium, especially the ice cream treats and the deep-fried foods.
Some items to avoid at Dairy Queen to make healthier choices include the large-size Blizzards, the hot dogs, the chicken strip baskets, and the cheese curds.
To make healthier choices at Dairy Queen, one can opt for the small-size Blizzards or skip them altogether, choose the grilled chicken sandwich or the grilled chicken salad, and go for a side of fruit instead of fries. Additionally, skipping the sugary sauces and toppings and choosing water or unsweetened iced tea can also help make the meal healthier.
