The Healthiest and Unhealthiest Kids Meals at Fast-Food Restaurants

Last week, McDonald's announced that starting in September, they're making Happy Meals healthier by adding apples and serving half as many French fries.

According to the website TheDailyMeal.com, the healthiest option is to nix the fries completely and go with chicken nuggets, apples and apple juice, which have a total of 380 calories.
