Mickie D's Happy Meal to Be Healthier

Ad Feedback

McDonald's, the worlds largest fast food chain, is looking to make some healthy changes.

The company says it plans to change the way that they market their food products to children.

"One hundred percent of our national advertising to children will include a nutrition announcement with it. So what we're trying to do is make children aware of the nutritional importance of their diet. We're again, confident about this being a great message for children," explained Jan Fields, McDonald's chief executive officer.

Another change will be what's in the hamburger chain's Happy Meal. There's no longer a choice between apples or french fries -- now kids will receive both.

The serving portion of fries will only be about half as much as it was before.

For the last 30 years, the Happy Meal has come in at about 590 calories. The new changes will reduce the menu item by 100 calories.

One thing that will not change with the Happy Meal -- children will still be able to find a toy.

McDonald's is also introducing an a new mobile phone app focused on nutritional information.
