McDonald’s to Add Cuties to Happy Meals


Guess after so many years, kids are tired of apples.

Beginning this month, McDonald’s will be adding Cuties California Clementines to their Happy Meals. The Sun Pacific Cuties will be available in both Happy Meals and Mighty Kids Meals as a new option for sides. The clementines are said to provide a decent amount of vitamin C.

Like most citrus-based fruits, they can be peeled and eaten with the kid’s lunch or snacked on later.

Currently kids can pick between apple slices and Go-GURT low fat strawberry yogurt. Also, fries.

The Cuties are part of a growing trend of healthier options for kids at McDonald’s restaurants and will be available through March 2015. Their availability will coincide with peak clementine season.

Customers can also purchase Cuties individually from the kids’ menus.
