Happy Mealsâ€™ Healthy Makeover
McDonaldâ€™s Canada is giving its iconic Happy Meal a makeover and introducing a new automatic offering of Danino (R) yogurt and the choice of apple slices or new mini-sized French fries, the company announced last week. The move is part of the companyâ€™s commitment to provide customers – especially its younger customers – with more nutrition-minded menu options.
â€śWeâ€™ve worked diligently to offer more variety in our Happy Meal so that the things kids love are also the things that parents can feel good about,â€ť said John Betts, President and CEO of McDonaldâ€™s Canada. â€śBy offering more balanced choices to choose from, weâ€™re supporting parents in encouraging their children to enjoy foods that are good for them.â€ť
â€śParents want the very best for their kids and so do we,â€ť added Betts. â€śWe continue to take a holistic approach to nutrition and remain as committed as ever to bringing all of our customers delicious choices they can also feel good about.â€ť
Canadian households will soon receive a McDonaldâ€™s mailer, which will include a coupon for $2 off a Happy Meal, valid from May 7 to June 3, 2012.
