The Evolving McDonald’s Happy Meal

Did you know that all McDonald’s restaurants in the greater New Orleans area are locally owned and operated? Most of these local business men and women are parents too. So we understand thatMcDonald's Happy Meal you want to serve your kids quality food, whether it’s something you prepare at home or something quick and on-the-go.

Quality Ingredients

You want the best for your family. So do we. That’s why we’re dedicated to evolving the way we prepare our quality food and the ingredients that go into it. Our Chicken McNuggets are made with 100% white meat chicken and no artificial colors, flavors, or preservatives. And our hamburgers are made with a 100% beef patty with no fillers, additives, or preservatives.

Evolving the Happy Meal for the Better

At McDonald’s, we’re committed to helping make nutrition-minded choices fun and easy for families, and we’ve made a lot of progress. In 2012, we introduced a new Happy Meal that automatically included Apple Slices and a smaller kid-sized fries, and we’ve continued to expand our side options to include Yoplait Go-GURT Low Fat Strawberry Yogurt and when in season, Cuties®. So far, we’ve served more than 2 billion packages of Apple Slices and 59 million California-grown Cuties!

Cuties Season is Here!

Cuties are an excellent source of vitamin C and deliver ¼ cup of fruit. Our Cuties are supplied by Sun Pacific, a family-owned fruit grower in California. It generally takes less than 2 weeks for Cuties to arrive at the store once harvested in the field.
