McDonald’s: Tuesday #gno Twitter Party on Nutritious Fun at Family Mealtime
McDonald’s is excited to introduce a new, national Happy Meal campaign to help make nutrition fun for kids! Timed with the nationwide availability of the new Happy Meal which automatically includes apple slices and a kids-size fry, the campaign engages families in the benefits of balanced eating and active play with new TV advertisements and a “Happy Meal Chefs” contest.
The TV advertisements feature new characters – each with a story that celebrates kids’ aspirations — that achieve their goals with the help of balanced eating and active play. As their stories unfold, they discover the benefits of eating foods from the recommended food groups including menu items found in the new Happy Meal. The ads are the first to support McDonald’s nutrition commitment to promote a nutrition and/or lifestyle message in 100 percent of its national communications to kids.
As McDonald’s continues to develop and test new offerings, a “Happy Meal Chefs” contest gives two parent and child teams the opportunity to help in the creation and testing of new, nutrition-minded Happy Meal choices, alongside McDonald’s executive chef Dan Coudreaut.
McDonald’s wants to hear the inspiring stories from you and your kids (ages 8-11) who enjoy cooking with wholesome ingredients at family mealtime. Ten kids will win a trip to the London 2012 Olympic Games to celebrate balanced eating and fun play with kids from around the world. Two Grand Prize Winners will become honorary “Happy Meal Chefs” and experience a one-of-a-kind apprenticeship with Chef Dan. To learn more about the contest, visit the Happy Meal Chefs contest page.
The new Happy Meal campaign is McDonald’s latest initiative to support of McDonald’s “Commitments to Offer Improved Nutrition Choices,” announced July 2011.
McDonald’s looks forward to hearing how you make nutrition fun for your kids. Be sure to mark your calendar for Tuesday, March 13 and join us as we chat about nutritious fun at family mealtime with McDonald’s!
