McDonald's Is Going to Make Happy Meals Much Healthier

The move to make the meals healthier comes as the company is trying to make a Happy Meal come in at 600 calories or less by 2022, NPR reported.

By 2022, 50 per cent or more of the Happy Meal bundle offerings shown on menus will meet the criteria of fewer than or equal to 600 calories; less than or equal to 10 per cent of calories from saturated fat; fewer than or equal to 650 milligrams of sodium; and less than or equal to 10 per cent of calories from added sugar.

McDonald's has pledged to make its Happy Meals more nutritious. Seventy-eight percent of Happy Meal options will fit the sodium requirement.

They'll do this by limiting the menu to a hamburger, 4-piece Chicken McNuggets, and 6-piece Chicken McNuggets. All combinations will comply with new nutritional criteria for added sugar and saturated fat, and 78 percent compliant with the new sodium criteria.

Simplifying ingredients in Happy Meals also will be a focus. So McDonald's says they plan to add new items to the menu, remove some items, and reformulate others. "The Happy Meal is a key part of that", Pisani continues. Since 2001, the company and its franchisees have distributed more than 370 million books in Happy Meals.
