Burger King Kid’s Menu – Hold the Soda

In an effort to keep up with the ever changing needs of the health conscious customers; Burger King is dropping soft drinks from their kid’s menus. Instead of the sugary beverage, your child will have the choice between fat free or chocolate milk and 100% apple juice.

One hope that comes with this change and the similar changes of other fast food chains, is that the bad eating habits of children will be eliminated or at least altered. Soda is said to be the most calorie intense item in most children’s diets. According to Paul Matheison, if a change is made during early childhood, some advocacy groups hope that this will make an impact on problem of childhood obesity.

In comparison with the changes made by McDonald’s and Wendy’s, Burger King falls right in the middle in similar kid’s meals of chicken nuggets, chocolate milk, fruit and french fries.
