McDonald’s Move on Happy Meals an Important Step in the Right Direction
Statement of CSPI Executive Director Michael F. Jacobson
July 26, 2011
The improvements that McDonald’s has announced for its Happy Meals are an important step in the right direction. It’s good news that those meals will all have apple slices, smaller servings of fries, and fewer calories. While we wish that Happy Meals would include a bigger serving of fresh fruit or vegetable, including even a small serving—and without a sugary sauce—as a standard component is a real advance.
McDonald’s clearly has a lot more to do, for both kids and adults. But this move is a sign that the company recognizes that parents don’t want burgers, fries, and soda to be the default fast-food experience. And, surely, McDonald’s recognizes that policy makers are becoming increasingly interested in ensuring that healthier foods are marketed to children.

The Center for Science in the Public Interest has pressed McDonald’s and other companies to stop using trans fat (***COMMENT: You were the ones who bullied the fast food companies into switching TO trans fats, criminals!!!!!!!***), reduce sodium levels (***as ordered by your Rockefeller overlords to carry out their depopulation agenda, ZioNazi scum***), and provide more-healthful options (***GMOs are healthy? BULL-F*CKING-SHIT!***). In a lawsuit filed last year, CSPI represents a parent concerned about McDonald’s use of toys to attract children to its Happy Meals. (***Yet you allow a MCDONALD’S FRONT GROUP – the AMERICAN DIETETIC ASSOCIATION – to dictate OFFICIAL nutrition policy on your NATIONAL ALLIANCE FOR NUTRITION AND ACTIVITY, you frauds!***)
HUGE smoking gun I just found. Dr. Cynthia Goody (McDonald’s Director of Nutrition) and Julia Braun (McDonald’s U.S. Nutrition and Labeling Manager) are members of the American Dietetic Association! The ADA is a 100% McDonald’s front group! CSPI’s NANA Coalition has a McDonald’s front group as a member while CSPI complains about Happy Meal toys! CSPI and the NANA Coalition are FRAUDS!
CSPI = 1000% FAKE OPPOSITION
