McDonald’s just announced plans to make Happy Meals healthier by the end of 2020. The goal is to have at least 50% of all Happy Meals contain no more than 600 calories, with only 10% coming from saturated fat, 10% coming from added sugars and with each meal having only 650 milligrams of sodium
How they will do this is by getting cheeseburgers by request only, cutting French fry portions, reducing sugar in chocolate milk and more.
They may start offering new, healthier food options in the meals, like a Junior Chicken, which is a grilled chicken sandwich.
McDonald's says that 100% of the changes, with the exception of the sodium decreases, will be adapted by June, with 78% of the sodium goals met by then as well.
