McDonald’s USA is making nutrition choices fun and easy for families with the introduction of its fresh, whole fruit side option in kids’ meals – Cuties California Clementines.
Beginning December 1, 2014, customers nationwide can choose to enjoy Cuties as a side in Happy Meals and Mighty Kids Meals, as well as “a la carte,” or just purchasing the side option itself.
We all can benefit from a variety of wholesome foods and nutrients in our diets every day to help keep us strong, healthy and performing at peak levels. That's why McDonald’s is constantly looking at their menu to ensure its giving their customers (including the youngest guests) a selection of balanced choices.
I am so happy and proud that McDonald's is doing their part to make choices in their meals healthier!! My boys are happy about it too!! They love Go-Gurt, and now another terrific treat, the Cutie makes it's way into their favorite meal!!
We went to our local McDonald's the other day to check out the new sides!!
No the coffees are not for the kids, those are mine!! My boys were so excited to have the "mini orange" in their boxes. Plus the toys right now are pretty cool. You can get penguins from The Penguins Of Madagascar movie!!
With the holiday's here, and so much time being spent out shopping, and just being in the car, eating out is a lot more common.
I know for myself, my time is extremely limited right now. Running a business, doing all the shopping, taking two kids back and forth to school and all of their activities, and trying to maintain a somewhat clean home, makes things stressful. Sometimes I just need some relax/down time where cooking is not needed. That is where McDonald's comes in.
My kids are getting a little too big for the standard Happy Meal. They like the Mighty Kids Meal. They still get the toys (which they love) and they get plenty to eat!!
Kids can choose between Cuties, Yoplait Go-GURT, Apple Slices or Fries as their sides, and 1% low-fat milk, 1% low-fat chocolate milk, 100% apple juice as their drink.
The Cuties are only available for a limited time (fresh fruit growing season,) so make sure you enjoy them now while you can!!
Oh and don't forget that the Happy Meal is selling for $2.99 right now, and the Mighty Kids Meal for $3.99. A great deal, for a terrific meal!!
Would you like to try some of the cuties?? The good folks at McDonald's would like to offer one lucky reader a $25 McDonald's Arch Card to eat out with the ones you love!!
