Glorious news! McDonald's is launching its first ever vegetarian Happy Meal

This is pretty exciting.

McDonald’s has introduced its first ever vegetarian Happy Meal, along with a new Spicy Veggie Wrap on the main menu. Fabulous news!

Frankie from The Saturdays was one of the first customers to try the delicious new vegetarian wrap options, and spoke very highly of them.

“Having more meal options that the kids enjoy makes my life all the easier and the Veggie Happy Meal wrap flavour was literally chosen by children, so I know it’s something that my son Parker will love too.

“I think it’s important that our diet is varied and full of choice, and for me at the moment, this means introducing more meat free meals… The boys and I are SO excited that we can now have that at our fave Maccy D’s!”

The introduction of the first ever Veggie Happy Meal and the new Spicy Veggie Wrap provides greater choice, which is considered to be one of the most important factors to customers when it comes to thinking about where to eat.

Lynne Elliot, Chief Executive the Vegetarian Society said:

“We’re really proud to have worked closely with McDonald’s for over 10 years and it’s great to see their veggie menu developing, especially as McDonalds tell us a third of their customers think it’s important to eat more veggie meals."

"There’s a growing demand for veggie food everywhere and it’s fantastic to see McDonald’s meeting the needs of their customers. It is especially important for young veggies to be able to choose something to eat when they are out with their friends."

"We are really thrilled to be able to give our customers this new choice with the addition of the Spicy Vegetarian Wrap and our first Vegetarian Happy Meal.”
