McDonald's has announced that in an attempt to make their menu healthier for kids they will soon remove cheeseburgers and chocolate milk from the "Happy Meal" menu. The Happy Meal has long been a target of health advocates and parents who link it to childhood obesity.


McDonald's said this week that it wants all its Happy Meal options to have 600 calories or fewer and have less than 650 milligrams of sodium. It also wants less than 10 percent of the meal's calories to come from saturated fat and added sugar.

Diners can still ask specifically for cheeseburgers or chocolate milk with the kid's meal, but the fast-food company said that not listing them will reduce how often they're ordered.
