With so many folks trying to eat better these days, restaurants are working to bring us healthier options. That’s why McDonald’s is making a change to its Happy Meals. Starting in November, their kids’ dinners will include an organic juice option that has less sugar than the traditional juice they had before.
Happy Meals will now come with juice from Honest Kids, part of Honest Tea, an organic beverage company that’s owned by Coca-Cola. A six-ounce Honest Kids Organic Appley Ever After juice box has 35 calories, eight grams of sugar and is 42% juice, compare that to a Minute Maid apple juice box that’s the same size and has 80 calories, 19 grams of sugar, and is 100% juice.
So the new ones aren’t 100% juice, but they have a lot less sugar and that makes parents happy. Now that you can get apple slices, mandarin oranges, and Go-Gurt yogurts as options, too, moms and dads can feel less guilty for getting Happy Meals for their little ones.
