In New Zealand, Weight Watchers has endorsed three items on McDonald's menu.

The Filet-o-Fish sandwich, Chicken McNuggets and a sweet chili seared chicken wrap sold only in New Zealand.

Each has been given a Weight Watcher's value of 6.5 points. Those points are part of the diet plan and are based on fat, calories and fiber in each item that is eaten.

Nutritionists are criticizing the move.

Weight Watchers in New Zealand says its trying to help guide consumers when they are dining out.
