Green apple in handWord has come that the McDonald’s happy meal is about to become happier. For the parents that is. On second thought, scrap that because if the parent makes McDonald’s a regular source of food for their child they probably don’t care (for whatever reason) what their kids eat. So make that happier for the adult that child is going to be and not the adult that cares for the child.

Eating at fast food restaurants like McDonald’s is associated with an increase in obesity. I’m not against children eating at McDonald’s but as an occasional treat not as a daily fare.

The new happy meal will include a piece of fruit and a smaller portion of french fries.
