I ordered the spicy Italian (salami and pepperoni) and they made it for my 3 year old. I do it all the time. I don't order the kids meal, just a mini sandwich. And they don't offer HIM any drinks or cookies, they ask me if I'd like a beverage or side and I always get milk or water for him.

True or false, it's nothing to be enraged about. It's not a big deal, it's a damn sandwich.

Quoting Kate Breezy:" Nuggets, burgers, and french fries plus the optional soda. Still doesn't sound healthy lol"


Entree - Nuggets, Cheeseburger, Hamburger, Grilled Cheese or Chicken Wrap
Sides - Small Fries, Mini Fries or Apple Slices
Drinks - Child sized soft drink, 1% white or chocolate milk, small juice or bottle of water



Much healthier than it used to be.

You can get fish bites now too...lol
But the fries are like 6 fries and now they come with apples at McDonald's.

Okay....



If you don't want your kids to have the fries, you eat them then give them the apples.



The point is that companies feel they need to make these changes because people aren't making healthy decisions for themselves.

I just looked this up and it seems grilled cheese is only in Canada.
But still, on the occasion I take LO to mcdonalds he gets chicken nuggets, apples, and milk. It could be better, but it used to be a hell of a lot worse.
I don't see understand why people get upset about restaurants offering healthier choices :? It's not like you can't still order a sandwich with salami or pepperoni on it and just say its for someone else or something.

So don't give them the fries. :idea: Just because it came with them doesn't mean your child needs to eat them.

Exactly. People have zero self control and self indulge themselves into food, mostly Americans. Someone has to do something to get a hold on this.

It's not the that offer. It's the mandate or the exclusion, if it exists.
For instance, the mayor of NYC has restricted large sodas but not banana splits or frappacinos.
My degree is in nutrition and i am PASSIONATE about childhood obesity but i dont believe the governemnt should be involved in mandated or restricted foods at private facilities.

I am all for healthy eating and nutritive medicine. I am capable of making decisions for myself and my child regarding nutrition.



A government that dictates what I can feed to my child is not a government of freedom. Freedom is an illusion. We are not really free. We merely have this thing that masquerades as freedom. So, it is not like I am surprised lol

I really don't think that is a real law.



Sounds like one of the fallacies that anti-Obama people keep perpetrating in order to discredit the POTUS and FLOTUS.
