McDonald’s Responds to Kids Menu Challenge from Panera CEO

McDonald's KapoleiMcDonald’s has responded to Panera Bread CEO Ron Shaich’s challenge to the CEOs of McDonald’s, Wendy’s and Burger King. Earlier this week he invited them to eat exclusively from their kids menus for a week—or to rethink what their restaurants are serving children.

“We’re proud of how we’re continuing to raise the bar on the food we serve at McDonald’s,” they said in a statement to PEOPLE. “Our recent announcement that we’re adding Honest Kids Juice Drink to our Happy Meals joins other positive changes we have made, such as removing artificial preservatives from Chicken McNuggets, which also don’t have artificial colors or flavors. Since 2012, McDonald’s has served more than 2 billion servings of fruit and low-fat dairy products like Go-Gurt and automatically offering apple slices in Happy Meals.” — Collier Sutter, People
