The Mighty Kids meal comes with a hamburger, a cheeseburger, or chicken nuggets. 

In 2001, McDonald’s started offering a Mighty Kids Meal in response to Burger King’s Big Kids Meal, which was launched in 1999. The meal is similar to a Happy Meal, but it scales up the portion sizes to be “just the perfect size for those in-be-tweens,” according to the website.

There are two options: six Chicken McNuggets with a small fries and a choice of apple slices, a clementine, or yogurt, with milk, chocolate milk, or apple juice to drink. The second option replaces the McNuggets with a McDouble.

So what’s so mighty about the Mighty Kids Meal? If you order a standard Happy Meal, you’ll only get four McNuggets instead of six, or a standard hamburger or cheeseburger instead of a McDouble. It’s a good option for parents looking to graduate their kids from the Happy Meal, but who aren’t ready to let them order off of the regular menu.
