Have you seen what’s new with McDonald’s Happy Meal?

July 5, 2018

Parents and children alike are being more aware of the food that they are consuming. Looking at the choices available and making informed decisions on what to enjoy for that given meal time. McDonald’s understand this and have made significant changes to their menu options, with a selection of meals under 400 and 600 calories available for adults to enjoy. But what about the children? Whilst the traditional burger, chicken nuggets and fish fingers are still available and much-loved. McDonald’s wanted to add additional choices to this menu.

Working alongside Mumsnetters they surveyed over 1000 parents to see what new addition they would like to see on the Happy Meal menu. 78% of participants wanted to see a grilled chicken wrap added to the menu.

Happy Meal Grilled Chicken Wrap 

Following months of research and focus groups with Mumsnetters, McDonald’s has added a grilled chicken wrap to its Happy Meal options. Allowing chicken to enjoy grilled chicken pieces, lettuce and tomato sauce all wrapped in a tortilla wrap. Whilst this itself sounds delicious, McDonald’s appreciates that we all enjoy our food slightly differently and you are able to customise the wrap. Ordering via the digital kiosks you can slight hit customise and add in a selection of cucumber, tomato etc. Or even remove the elements that are possibly not to your child’s liking. This is also great for when older children need a little extra in their Happy Meal but not quite as much as an Extra Value Meal.

An afternoon of McDonald’s Happy Meal fun

Last weekend I and the children headed over to McDonald’s St Pauls for an afternoon of Happy Meal fun. With the new grilled chicken wrap launched earlier in the week, it was a chance to taste test the final product. Alongside this, the children were treated to activities, games, face painting, and the all-important balloon creations – which is a necessity for all children’s parties!

The new grilled chicken wrap is available now on the McDonald’s Happy Meal menu

How will you enjoy yours?

    I love this! Well done McDonald’s for leading the way with healthier options for fast food. My only issue with McDonald’s is they still haven’t introduced a gluten free menu! I miss double cheeseburgers more than life itself.

    I think this is a great addition to the menu. Many kids are also more aware of making healthy choices so this is great to see.

    I don’t think I’ll be feeding my kids McDonalds still 🙁 I know they’ve changed but we love making food together it’s just a choice x

    It is brilliant that they have added this to the menu! They have so much choice now x

    I must admit we don’t normally eat at McDonald’s my daughter has an obsession with cheese sandwiches. But I think we will try.

    My boys will love the grilled wraps, they’re chicken fiends.

    Lovely to see that McDonalds are expanding their children’s menu choices, although most of mine now choose an adult meal over the children’s! I LOVE their self service kiosks and choose it over the drive through as its lovely to be able to add and omit the ingredients the children (or myself) are not keen on!

    It’s great to see that Mcdonalds are offering a wider variety on their Happy Meal menu
