McDonald's will offer side salads and fruit as an option in its value meals in its bigger markets, and will also begin pushing healthier drinks for its Happy Meals.
The moves are part of a number of health-centric global initiatives the chain announced today with the Alliance for a Healthier Generation, a non-profit founded by the Clinton Foundation and the American Heart Association to reduce childhood obesity.

gee Mommy, take me out for a treat, I’ve got a craving for some apple slices and skim milk!
I agree....stop the soda for kids. It was a treat for us. But give the kids whole milk and stop this no fat/lo fat crap.
Apples are a great at home snack...You put a bowl on the table...and they get the hint IF YOU TEACH THEM TO GET THE HINT.
Ever notice what the Clown eats when he does a restaurant photo-op? He eats a giant greasy RED MEAT, BEEF BURGER.
Always soda and fries, too. Then he has ice cream.
I would prefer the parents to choose, NOT the Clintons or the Clown and his wife......
C'mon now ... let's be rational.
Unless someone is really, REALLY convinced their diet is the reason they lost 100 lbs and keeps it off ... they will work by God at it until they die.
Americans are bigger by genetic structure .. especially after 40 (imo)
Asians are predestined to be short and small ... they just are.
My wife is 44 and has the figure of a 20 year old. Her family are all small and slim, so I'll bet she dies at 110 lbs with beautiful legs.
Look at yoko ono at what? .. 67 years old?
This obesity thing is, imo ... just another facet of the terrorism the gummint has been foisting on us for 12 years.
The whole point of going to McDonalds is for a TREAT, not to try to get the food pyramid
If I (or my kids) want to eat salad, apples and drink milk why go to McDonalds?
My kids rarely get fast food. We are talk once every couple months if that. We only have soda in the house on special occassions (Birthdays, Holidays). When we take them out to fast food I do not want to overpay for apples and salad. Also, who in thier right mind give a kid skim milk?
Let them do as they will... I will never set foot in another mcfascist again.
you pay a $1 upcharge for milk with a happy meal, soda is free.
This ought to make a lot of people real “happy”.
Many of these Mega Corporations are tools of Globalist authoritarians. They use them to control sectors of the economy and as social engineering platforms. They aren’t motivated by profit, they want power over peoples lives.
First they banned for the Happy Meal toys, then they banned the sodas - compliance is teaching the upcoming generation to obey government edicts.
there was a time when skim milk was considered unfit for human consumption and was fed to the hogs, still is unfit as far as I'm concerned.
I drank whole milk until I discovered Half&Half.
Cola will rot out the bones, especially damaging when ingested in large quantities by growing kids. I never liked it, probably consumed little more than a bottle’s worth in my life and in a physically rough growing up only broke one bone in my life, a hand bone when I hit one of the few things harder- my brother’s head.
I drank cola throughout my life, especially as a kid. I’ve never had a broken bone. lol
True, but you’ve never bumped into my brother’s thick skull either. It’s so dense, you’d think he was a Hyannisport Kennedy.
I waited till they were a little older and took them out to a decent place with a salad bar. I wanted them to learn proper manners and enjoy good food. And they ordered milk.
We had our favorite pasta place with gnocci and treats like artichoke French.
I'm not sure why McDonalds and Burger King even exists.
