What should my toddler eat at McDonald’s?
Asked by rjc2009 on May 22, 2009 in Family & Pregnancy

I have a toddler and we go to McDonald's sometimes.  What is the healthiest choice on their menu?


Teach your toddler that McDonald’s is for a day of fun: fun clown, fun toy, fun food.  It’s for sometimes, but not for everyday. Don't go to MickyDs more than once a week. But with that said, the healthiest foods at McDonald’s are the Fruit ‘n Yogurt Parfait, salad, grilled chicken strips, egg on a muffin, and the apple slices with low fat caramel dip. But, really, a toddler only cares about the toy and so you should get the Happy Meal. You, on the other hand, can eat the healthier food as a role model - and don’t finish the Chicken McNuggets that your toddler won’t care to eat.
