McDonald’s Happy Meals Getting Healthier

I will confess, I love me some McDonald’s. And I know some of the menu options can be, well let’s say, less than healthy. But you can make some smart choices, like getting fruit with your meal!

McDonald’s announced today that it will reduce the french fries in your kid’s Happy Meal and automatically add a bag of the popular sliced apples. The new french fry portion will be 1.1 ounces, down from 2.4 ounces previously, and equal to about 100 calories. However, the apple portion size will go down too, from its current 3.1 ounces to 1.2 ounces.

As a result of this change, the Happy Meal will have 20% fewer calories, making the whole meal just under 600 calories.

Look for this change to start taking place in September. We salute you McDonald’s!
