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?


Answer

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.

Is It Possible to Go Natural?
The side effects of allergy medications keep some people from using them. Natural remedies can be a great alternative, but some are more effective than others.
