McDonald's Cuts Cheeseburgers From Happy Meals

The items will not appear on menus for Happy Meals or in advertising but customers can still ask for them.

These goals build on the commitments McDonald's has made to improve options for kids.

McDonald's has pledged to make its Happy Meals more nutritious.

In the US McDonald's has also said it will half fries portions and the six-piece chicken McNugget Mighty Meals, which are only available across the pond. And the French fry sizes will be smaller.

As part of its commitment to create healthier food options for kids it has been working with the website Mumsnet to develop a new item for the iconic Happy Meal.

The chief justice said that Hussain Haqqani had assured the apex court of his return but had backtracked from his promise. He also informed the court that the FIA needs an arrest warrant issued by the court to proceed against Haqqani.

In an effort to provide healthier food options to its customers, McDonald's announced plans to change what's served in Happy Meals for children.

McDonald's says it wants all its Happy Meal options to have 600 calories or fewer and for less than 10 percent of the meal's calories to come from saturated fat and added sugar. "This is more of the same".

McDonald's also revealed that it's planning to make the changes worldwide as well.

You might love it, but your kids may have a different opinion. The calorie target will be met by the US restaurants by June.

The menu change only applies to the US for now. The Happy Meal is a key part of that. "I tasted it. I enjoyed it", Braun says of the veggie burger in France. As for plans to introduce a McVegan burger in US stores? "'It's got to have mass appeal'".

All Happy Meals in the United States will have 600 calories or less by June, and at least half of stores and drive-throughs around the world will meet that target by 2022. In December 2013, customers chose water, milk or juice as their beverage choice in 38 percent of Happy Meals and that number increased to 52 percent in December 2017. "Today's announcement represents meaningful progress".

The cheeseburger will disappear from McDonald's Happy Meals menu, but it will still be available. According to the company, "for the first time, more than half of Happy Meals ordered in the USA have included water, milk or juice as their beverage of choice".
