A few years ago, McDonald's added apple slices as a food choice to their Happy Meal and earlier this month they introduced Go-GURT® Low-Fat Strawberry Yogurt. Guests have more options for sides in kids’ meals – they can choose either Go-GURT Low-Fat Strawberry Yogurt or apple slices, or choose both together as their sides in place of a kid-size fry.
Oh, and one more thing, McDonald's also introduced a new animated character "Happy", who encourages healthier McDonald's dining options such as fruit, juice, milk and Go-GURT® Low-Fat Strawberry Yogurt.
Happy touts this Go-GURT Low-Fat Strawberry Yogurt made exclusively for McDonald’s, contains 50 calories, has 25 percent less sugar than the leading kids’ yogurt* and is made with natural flavor.
Why the changes you ask? Well, McDonald’s has partnered with the Alliance for a Healthier Generation, an organization founded by the American Heart Association and Clinton Foundation to reduce the prevalence of childhood obesity and empower kids to develop lifelong, healthy habits.
Be sure to check out the new menu options and let McDonald's know what you think about the new menu options by visiting their Facebook and Twitter pages.
I'm glad McDonald's is adding healthier menu options and happy to offer Three Boys and an Old Lady blog readers a chance to receive coupons for free McDonald's Happy Meals.
