The exchange list is a meal planning system developed by dietitians primarily for people with diabetes. It groups together foods that have similar carbohydrate, protein, fat, and calories, and can be used as a guide for planning balanced meals. This exchange list was compiled by our Registered and Licensed Dietitian with previous experience as a Certified Diabetes Educator. The exchanges were calculated based on the nutrient analysis of each menu item listed using Exchange Lists for Meal Planning from the American Dietetic Association and the American Diabetes Association as a reference.

Substitutions of ingredients may alter nutritional values and thus could alter the exchange values. Although this data is based on standard portion product guidelines, variations can be expected due to seasonal influences, minor differences in product assembly per restaurant and other factors. Except for limited time offerings or test market items, menu products as of this posting are included on this site. Product data is based on current formulations as of date of posting.

If you need further assistance using food exchanges for meal planning, please see a Registered Dietitian, diabetes educator or contact the American Diabetes Association at www.diabetes.org, 1-888-DIABETES, or the American Dietetic Association at www.eatright.org.
