What is McDonalds doing? 3 apple slices...really!!!!
I took my son to McDonalds today and ordered his usual Happy Meal with apple slices. He got a bag with [count them] 3 apple slices in it. He said "Where's the apples?" I took it up to the counter thinking there was a mistake.
I was informed that now McDonalds is going to include both french fries and apples in all happy meals which means fewer apples. What's more is that since their computers weren't set up for the inclusion of fries yet, all we get are the three apple slices. We will not be allowed to request apples only in the future either.
I realize that there was some news a few months back that McDonalds was going to try to help inner city youth to get healthier by including apples in all happy meals. However, I did not realize this would mean that they would force french fries on everyone or that they would be greatly reducing the amount of apple slices in their meals.
So in order to help some kids learn to like fresh fruit (like they are going to learn that from 3 apple slices), I have to give my son a less healthy meal with barely any fruit and add deep fat fries.
This is so wrong and I am ready to boycott McDonalds over it.
Is it really to help some kids to eat healthier or is it saving McD's some money?
How do you all feel about this?
