The chili is one of the healthiest options on the Wendy's menu, and a large size only adds a modest amount more sodium and fat than a small, according to LifeHacker.com. The Junior Hamburger is healthier than the Cheeseburger, but the cheese only adds another 50 calories. The grilled chicken options are generally a healthy bet. The Asian Cashew Chicken Salad has a good amount of fiber and protein, though it's healthier with little or no dressing.

The Grilled Chicken Wrap and Ultimate Chicken Grill Sandwich similarly offer higher protein and fiber and less fat than beef options do, and the lettuce, tomato and onions included also help boost the health factor. Even the Chicken Caesar Salad can be considered healthy, especially if too much dressing isn't used. Baked potato is another reasonably healthy option, as long as it doesn't come with cheese sauce. Eating the potato with broccoli and chili balances out the potato, which is high in potassium but doesn't contain many other nutrients.
