Happy Meal Re-Vamp? Whaddya Think?

So, have you guys heard this? Starting in September, our beloved Happy Meals will automatically contain a new item: Produce? 

Yep, that's right! McDonald's is going to downsize the size of the fries in Happy Meals (from 2.4 to 1.1 ounces), and start automatically putting in apple dippers (without the caramel dip)! 

I think this is a very exciting and long overdue change! We don't usually eat out, but when we go to McDonald's, I always try to get Tater to get the apple dippers, but he throws a fit, because right now, if you get apple dippers, you don't get fries! But now, you will be able to get both! (It will also be an option to get 2 bags of apple dippers instead of any fries.)

Another part of this that I thought was really exciting was that McDonald's says that they may offer carrots, pineapple slices, raisins or mandarin oranges as an option, depending on the season and region. McDonald's plans on also reducing the sodium content of all of its menu items by 15 percent by 2015. 

I think this is a great idea! Apparently it stems from the fact that McDonald's was getting into trouble for marketing Happy Meal toys to kids when the Happy Meals weren't meeting nutritional requirements.... 

What do you guys think about this? Good idea, bad idea? I would love to know your opinions!
