McDonald’s Latest Healthy Move Is Good For Business

McDonald’s upcoming plan to make its classic Happy Meal healthier is a decision that will benefit children’s needs, as well as their business goals. revealed why this marketing strategy is a healthy move.

"This is good publicity, and if you sell more Happy Meals, you're likely selling more Big Macs to the parents," says Peter Saleh, a restaurant analyst with Telsey Advisory Group in New York.

While McDonald’s has always offered healthier choices for parents who ask, now these options will be automatically included in the box. The new Happy Meals will include apple slices and a smaller serving of French fries. Parents can also request all apple slices if desired.

McDonald’s healthy initiative is intended to help the franchise hold on to its loyal customer base by accepting their behavioral shift toward healthier eating. It’s also in response to the numerous competitors who are already serving healthier choices and threatening to bite into McDonald’s market share. Lastly, it’s an effort to satisfy the many critics who preach about childhood obesity and condemn marketing to children at all.

With these new Happy Meals, McDonald’s is acknowledging everyone’s concerns about better eating and ultimately reaping the healthy rewards.
