McDonalds Introduces #NewHappyMeal

I’m excited to post about a very cool event in D.C. Very last minute, I know. I’m heading to the event in a bit myself. But, before I go, I want to share about the launch of a New Happy Meal.

That’s right, McDonald’s is launching a new Happy Meal. The ubiquitous McDonald’s® Happy Meal® is getting a healthy makeover. And the launch events are taking place all over the USA, including in our neck off the woods.

So if you are in the vicinity of the McDonald’s at 4130 Wisconsin Avenue, NW — huge parking lot behind the restaurant and it is walking distance from Tenleytown Metro. Stop by at 1:30 p.m. today — Friday, September 16.

If you can’t make it to the launch of the new McDonalds Happy Meal, follow the event on Twitter — @McDonalds_DMV and hashtag #NewHappyMeal.

The 411 about the event:

McDonald’s has launched a new Happy Meal in support of the company’s recently announced ‘Commitments to Offer Improved Nutrition Choice’ which strive to help customers – especially children and families –make nutrition-minded choices whether visiting McDonald’s or elsewhere.

As one of the first markets to offer the new Happy Meal, the Greater Washington, D.C. region will commemorate the occasion, by unveiling the new Happy Meal with a panel discussion about McDonald’s commitment to nutrition. The event starts at 1:30 p.m. today (September 16).

Guest Panel:

  • Shaye Arluk, MS, RD, HFI, Dietitian
