McDonald’s will offer three of the country’s most popular kids treats — DANNON Danimals drinkable lowfat yogurt, plus General Mills Go-GURT portable yogurt, and Fruit Roll-Ups fruit snacks.
Beginning today, specially packaged with colorful Ronald McDonald graphics, the treats include two General Mills products: Ronald’s Strawberry Splash Go-GURT, a spoonless, tube yogurt that is a good source of calcium, and Strawberry Sensation Fruit Roll-Ups snacks made with real fruit and an excellent source of vitamin C, plus Danimals Drinkable Strawberry Explosion from Dannon, providing a strong bones combo of calcium and vitamin D.
“McDonald’s has always been about providing choices for our customers. These new treats are an excellent nutrient package for youngsters,” noted Ann Rusniak, Registered Dietitian, McDonald’s Corporation. “The two yogurt snacks, Go-GURT and Danimals Drinkable, provide a good source of calcium, and the Fruit Roll-Ups fruit snacks provide 25 percent of the daily value of vitamin C. As a mom and a registered dietitian, I know the importance of having this type of nutrient value in a snack food that kids enjoy.”
McDonald’s Kids’ Treats are available as an additional purchase with a McDonald’s Happy Meal or Mighty Kids Meal, or as an a la carte snack any time of the day. Suggested retail prices for the new Kids’ Treats are 69 cents for Danimals Drinkable, 59 cents for Go-GURT, and 39 cents for Fruit Roll-Ups. The Kids’ Treat Menu is a limited time offer. (Prices and participation based on independent operator decision.)
