McDonald’s USA president Jan Fields announced the company’s “Commitments to Offer Improved Nutrition Choices.” The comprehensive plan aims to help customers — especially families and children — make nutrition-minded choices whether visiting McDonald’s or eating elsewhere.”
But the biggest and fastest change customers will notice at first will be the change with the popular Happy Meal. Traditionally, fries have been standard fare with the toy-oriented child’s meal. Now, they’ll only get a half order of fries, and half order of apples. If they want a full order, that will come extra.
Although McDonald’s was already offering a choice of apples or fries with Happy Meals, only 11 percent of customers were choosing apples, the company says. In response, apples will become standard in Happy Meals in early 2012.
Overall the changes in the Happy Meal amounts to 3 or 4 small slices of apples, one ounce less of French fries, and less sodium.
