Yumi Media comments on an article published in The Washington Post about McDonald’s first meatless Happy Meal option, Fish McBites.

On February 13, Yumi Media comments on an article in The Washington Post on McDonald’s recent meatless Happy Meal item, joining companies, like Quorn, in offering non-meat options to the public.

According to The Washington Post article, “McDonald’s to put ‘Fish McBites’ in Happy Meals, marketing first non-meat option for kids,” provided by the Associated Press, “The world’s biggest hamburger chain said the Fish McBites will be widely available at U.S. restaurants starting this week through March, to coincide with Lent.” In addition, the company will feature three options on its menu as “snack (10 pieces), regular (15 pieces) and shareable (30 pieces).”

Part of its “new limited-time offers,” Fish McBites kicks off the new plan by being the first of many temporary items to be offered. The article stated, “By adding more variety to its menu, the company is hoping it can fend off intensifying competition and tempt customers to eat out more at a time when many are being more careful about their spending.”

Yumi Media recognizes McDonald’s non-meat option as a possibility for vegetarians and vegans and says, “Offering a meatless option is appealing to vegetarian children and for parents who are interested in limiting their children’s red meat intake.” They add, “However, this option is only offered a limited time and there are other companies, like Quorn, who offer nutritious, tasty meals in grocery stores and not at a fast food establishment.”
