McDonalds Launches Healthy "Happy Meal"

 - Feb 6, 2007
In a continuing bid to attract healthy eating Australians, McDonalds has launched a new type of Happy Meal named "Pasta Zoo". It contains 10 pieces of animal shaped Pasta, 'Zoo Goo' sauce, a low-fat milk drink with a milk Sipaah straw, ripper grippers and a toy all piled into an animal shaped box. McDonalds reps note that the meal is high in carbohydrates, protein and calcium, has no artificial colours or flavours, contains less than 10 grams of fat and is a source of iron. However, it seems that healthy options come at a premium for McDonalds, because at $5.95 it's way steeper in price than a regular Happy Meal. At least there's some brand consistency though with the little animals looking just as plastic as a Cheeseburger....
