McDonald’s Is Taking The Cheeseburger Out Of The Happy Meal — But Will It Help Kids Get Healthier??
McDonald’s has been trying to shed its Super Size Me image for years now, and on Thursday the fast food giant announced its biggest step yet.
The cheeseburger will now no longer be a menu option for the Happy Meal.
In addition, the portion of fries will be downsized, the chocolate milk’s sugar content will be reduced, and a bottle of water will be added as a drink option.
Mickey D’s goal is to get the Happy Meal down to 600 calories, with less than 10% each from saturated fat and added sugars. Find more on the company’s 2022 goals HERE.
BTW, cheeseburger lovers will still be able to make special requests for the treat in their Happy Meal — but that will be more like a secret menu type deal now.
The question is, will these changes help lead to healthier kids? Let us know what YOU think (below)!
