Dad Makes His Own 'McDaddy's Smile Meal' For Kids
A quick-thinking dad knocked together his own version of a Happy Meal to keep his little girl's happy when he couldn't get to a McDonald's.
Driving instructor Andy, who lives in Suffolk, was able to quickly pop to the shops to pick up the bits he needed to create his own knock-off Happy Meals, not forgetting the all important toy, which he was able to grab from Poundland.
Andy said: "The kids wanted a McDonald's but the closest one is 13 miles away, it's quite rural round here so we can't always get them one.
"I popped into town and picked up a couple of toys, ran into Iceland and grabbed a few burgers and whacked it all together.
"I used the grease proof paper and a bit of tape to keep them all together and there we had it.
"The kids loved it because it all came in a bag, they found their chips, burger and toy and ate the lot.
"It was all freshly made so it was healthier than the original takeaway and all together it only cost me £3."
Andy says he was forced to think on his feet when his kids Alannah, six, and Kahlan, four, asked for Happy Meals for lunch last Saturday and he knew he wouldn't be able to get there.
"My wife had to come home from work because she was a little under the weather so I was left to my devices on daddy duty to get lunch sorted," he explained.
"It was actually really easy to make, and my daughters had a lot of fun opening it all so maybe that'll be the plan in the future when they want a McDonald's.
"It was much cheaper and probably better for them, the toy really sold it though."
Andy shared the photos of his handiwork on Facebook and was quickly flooded with praise for his genius idea.
Watch out Ronald, Andy's coming for you.
