McDonald’s Happy Meal: Say goodbye to your cheeseburger


McDonald’s announced this week that by 2022, cheeseburgers won’t be part of the menu for the kids’ Happy Meals anymore. The company wants to “reinforce responsible marketing to children.” The cheeseburger will still be available but not bundled with the Happy Meal.  Are they saying that cheeseburgers are not healthy? 15% of McDonald’s customers come in to order happy meals. There sure will be a bunch of unhappy kids out there. The responsibility will now fall on the parents to make the wrong food choice for their kids. Or is this just another veiled money grab to go outside the Happy Meal combo to pay more for the cheeseburger?
