Q: Can Happy Meals be part of a balanced diet for kids?
Yes, McDonald's Happy Meals can be part of a well-balanced diet for kids. In fact, kids' meals at McDonald's offer age-appropriate portion sizes and contain at least nine important nutrients that growing kids need, including calcium, iron, zinc, B vitamins, vitamin C, and other vitamins and minerals (according to the US Food and Drug Administration), depending on choices made. McDonald's Singapore offers mix 'N' match Happy Meals which allows parents to create a balanced meal for their children simply by choosing an entrée, a side and drink from a wide range of wholesome choices including Corn Cup and Apple Slices. By offering greater choice, we aim to help children eat balanced meals, while encouraging the right balance between calories consumed and energy expended through physical activity.
