Sometimes in a busy day, fast food is the easiest option. And sometimes, we just have a craving for a Frosty and that’s okay! Nothing is off limits with WeightWatchers, everything is on the table, and it’s all about balance.

To take the guesswork out of ordering at Wendy’s, we’ve got a handy guide listing the Points values of common menu items. For anything not covered here, just do a quick search in your WeightWatchers app for the item so you can find out how many Points it is and easily track it.


The Points values of Wendy’s breakfast items vary, but your lowest-Point option is a Classic Bacon, Egg and Cheese Sandwich. Feel free to ask for no bacon to reduce the Points a little further.
