No More Cheeseburgers, Chocolate Milk in McDonald’s Happy Meals

 

McDonald’s announced Thursday that it will soon be removing cheeseburgers and chocolate milk from its menu, USAToday reported. The fast food chain is also cutting the size of fries in the larger 6-piece chicken-nugget Mighty Kids Meal, in an effort to cut down on the calories, sodium, saturated fat and sugar consumed by children at its restaurants.

By the end of 2022, about 50 percent of the kid’s meal options listed on menus will see new nutrition criteria. The global Happy Meal will include Happy Meals with 600 calories or less; less than 10 percent of calories from added sugar, up to 10 percent of calories from saturated fat; and no more than 650 mg sodium.

The company will make smaller the size of the fries served with the six-piece Chicken McNugget and the standard small fry will downsize to a smaller size for kids.

In the U.S. McDonald’s have already reduced sugar and switched to organic apple juice that is lower in calories and sugar. The chocolate milk will come in a new lower-sugar version.
