There's Now A Grilled Chicken Wrap On The McDonald's Kids' Menu

If you ask any kid in the world what they want to have for their tea, there is a pretty strong possibility that they will immediately scream the word "McDonald's" back at you without even drawing breath.

That response is something we can all understand because, hell, we were all young once. Every kid sees Maccies as the ultimate treat meal - once a month, once a year, whatever you were allowed, it always felt special.

It's only now that we're older that we realise the secret. Adults like McDonald's too, they WANTED to go there all along, and were just giving us the illusion of choice.

Anyway, now even the most healthy-living, fitness-minded among us can have the experience. As of today, McDonald's is offering a new, non-fried chicken wrap.

The grilled chicken wrap will be added to the Happy Meals menu alongside all of your old favourites - you'll still be able to get them, don't worry.

The grilled chicken wrap will be available at all of the McDonald's restaurants in England and Ireland today, and parents can then add several types of healthy green options to their kid's wrap if they want. Let's face it, it won't only be kids who are scoffing it down.

Stuff like cucumber, pickle, and onion will be on offer from the click and collect machines in stores, as well as various sauces. For an extra 20p you can even have a tomato on there. Without the tomato, the whole thing will set you back £2.49.

If that's not your thing, you can still make your choice of either a burger, crispy chicken wrap, fish fingers, or good old chicken nuggets ion the £2.69 meal.

What's more, if you are not that keen on the chips and fizzy drinks that you can get, you can switch those up too.

Instead of chips you can have carrot sticks, or a fruit bag. Instead of fizzy pop you can get some organic milk or a bottle of water instead.

The latest developments to the McDonald's Happy Meal menu come after the fast food company entered into a collaboration and product development period of about six months with the popular parenting forum Mumsnet.

After asking the mums they found that about eight in every 10 parents asked thought that there should be a grilled chicken option for their kids on the Happy Meals menu.

Seems like a no-brainer then, once you put it like that.
