At McDonald’s we’re committed to enhancing children’s well-being through programs and initiatives that encourage active, playful creativity.
In association with the National Association for Sport and Physical Education and the U.S. Olympic Committee, we developed Passport to Play - a fun way to keep kids' minds engaged and bodies active. Created for 3rd–5th graders, the program introduces kids to the wide world of play through fun, active games they learn to play from 11 countries around the globe. Working with the Produce for Better Health Foundation, Passport to Play also introduces kids to fruits and veggies from those 11 countries.
Or check out the fun activities on our McWorld website that’s just for tweens.
McDonald’s has a long history of cheering on young athletes. Who knows? Maybe your kid will be named to our McDonald’s All American High School Basketball team someday - or will represent the U.S. at the Olympics.
Along with a well-balanced diet, the 2005 Dietary Guidelines for Americans from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and U.S. Department of Agriculture recommends that kids get at least 60 minutes of moderate physical activity, including active play, most days of the week.
Next time you’re taking the kids to lunch, come to a McDonald’s PlayPlace. We strive to make our PlayPlaces a fun, safe environment for climbing, jumping, crawling and running. Or take the family on a bike ride or walk instead of driving for your next Happy Meal run.
