In addition to creating fun moments, the Happy Meal is well-loved for providing delicious favorites like Chicken McNuggets and hamburgers. Over the years, many new, balanced choices have been added to the Happy Meal so parents can feel good about the options they’re feeding their families. Globally, McDonald’s has served more than 6.4 billion fruit, vegetable, low-fat dairy and water options in Happy Meals since 2013, and its commitment has evolved to the global Happy Meal goals announced in 2018.
McDonald’s latest Happy Meal iteration is complete, and well ahead of schedule. Earlier this year, McDonald’s announced the realization of its global commitments developed with the Alliance for a Healthier Generation in 2013 to better promote fruit, vegetables, low-fat dairy and water in 20 major markets representing about 85% of the system’s sales. The initial objectives were to offer alternative sides and beverages as part of the ubiquitous chain’s popular Happy Meal offerings, as well as to provide a side salad, fruit or vegetable as a substitute for French fries in value meals.
One fun fact to localize: many of the apple slices found in the Happy Meal are sourced right here in Washington from local growers.
