What’s in Your Happy Meal?

Author Joan Bruno has been hanging onto a McDonald’s Happy Meal for a whole year. She recently revealed that the food was so full of preservatives that it had not even begun to rot. Disgusting!

If you’re reading this site, chances are you wouldn’t be too happy with a grey hamburger patty and a disposable cup of sodapop. I thought it would be fun to hear from you guys! What would be in your real happy meal?

Maybe something like:

A hearty black bean burger on a whole grain bun? Maybe with some baked sweet potato fries or regular oven fries on the side! Instead of a sugary sodapop, how about a tall glass of water?

So, let’s hear it! What would be in your happy meal? Do you have any ideas for kid-friendly alternatives to the golden arches?
