Happy Meal Change
July 26, 2011 by staff
Happy Meal Change, McDonald Happy Meal Kids Meals, both in Canada and the U.S. are changing – but in different ways. McDonald says Canada will test a new Happy Meal in the fall, including a small portion of 1 percent of nonfat milk. Yogurt is added to the drink and the entry is already offered. There will still be the option of fries or apple slices. Canada spokeswoman Karin Campbell McDonald says CTV.ca that the size of chips is available in Happy Meals will be reduced to 31 grams from the current 71 grams. She could not say how many calories would be in the new yogurts, but said all the Happy Meals are added to less than 500 calories.
In the U.S., meanwhile, plans to add McDonald apple slices to all the Happy Meals. The company today announced that early next year, Happy Meals in the U.S. include half-order of apples and a half order of French fries. Customers can get all the potatoes or apples especially if they ask.
Toys still are included and the price of food will not change these settings.
Campbell explained that the options in the U.S. Happy Meals and Canada are different because each company responds to what their customers want and demand. She says Canada McDonald has sold nearly 3.5 million pounds of sliced?? Apples last year – an increase of almost 50 percent since the apples were first offered in Canada in 2006.
U.S. McDonald says the changes in their Happy Meals; reduce the number of calories in foods by 20 percent. Also reduce the total amount of fat in foods, although it was unclear to what extent.
U.S. McDonald also pledged Tuesday to reduce sugar, saturated fat and calories in their meals through “Portion sizes varied, reformulations and innovations” in 2020. He gave no details of how to do this.
By 2015, the restaurant chain plans to reduce sodium by 15 percent. He said he had already begun to do this by reducing sodium levels in most of the themes of his chicken. “The commitments we are announcing today will guide the future evolution of our menu and marketing,” said Jan Fields, president of U.S. McDonald, in a press release.
