"In June 2018, 100 percent of the meal combinations offered on Happy Meal menu boards in the U.S. will be 600 calories or fewer, and 100 percent of those meal combinations will be compliant with the new nutrition criteria for added sugar, saturated fat, and 78 percent compliant with the new sodium criteria," McDonald's said in a press release.
We all have fond memories of slugging a ketchup-covered burger and a Coke as a 6-year-old, and if you're upset about today's youths missing out on that, rest well knowing it's still possible. The cheeseburgers will still be available in Happy Meals upon request. However, fries will also be reduced from a small fry to a special kids size, and McDonald's is planning to switch to a lower-sugar chocolate milk. Normal burgers will remain on the menu.
