Since 2013, we have been working with the Alliance for a Healthier Generation, a third-party nonprofit organization, to evolve the Happy Meal menu and use our size and scale to offer more balanced choices for kids.
As part of this work, we removed soda from U.S. menu boards in 2014, resulting in a 15% increase in the number of Happy Meal orders served with milk, water or juice drink between 2013 and 2018.
In 2018, we announced ambitious Global Happy Meal Goals with the Alliance for a Healthier Generation that continue our focus on Happy Meals. Since 2018, we’ve sold over 2.5 billion Happy Meal items containing fruit, vegetable, low fat dairy, water, lean protein or whole grains across our 20 major markets**.
**The 20 major markets include: Argentina, Australia, Austria, Brazil, Canada, China, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Italy, Japan, Netherlands, Poland, Russia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Taiwan, the United Kingdom, and the United States.
