Adult 'Happy Meals' offer salad, no prize




CHICAGO, Illinois (AP) -- Coming soon to a McDonald's near you: Adult Happy Meals, featuring salad, bottled water, pedometer and a little bit of advice: Walk more.

The hamburger giant outlined plans Thursday to introduce the "Go Active!" meals for grown-ups at all 13,500 of its U.S. restaurants May 6 along with other steps designed to make its fare -- and its image -- more healthy.

A target of obesity lawsuits and a magnet for criticism that fast food is unhealthy, McDonald's Corp. also launched a marketing blitz to address health issues head-on and tout new diet-conscious options at its outlets.

Michael Jacobson, executive director of the Center for Science in the Public Interest, credited McDonald's with taking "some small steps in the right direction" Thursday but said they don't go nearly far enough.


I can't believe this one... but I guess it is a neat marketing idea !

I think we should have toys too - its not fair that the kids get them and we adults don't. I wouldn't mind one of those shiny black helicopters and I daresay Nottoohappy wouldn't say no to getting Jessica Alba in his happy meal. (But then he'd have to change his name and lose all his ATS points)

Macdonalds food should come with anti-cholesterol drugs. Eat there, then tell you to walk? Has anyone seen the size of that Grimace? I think YOU should be payed to eat there.
