This would be the first major addition to the classic Happy Meal in decades.

Since its introduction last year, all-day breakfast at McDonald’s has been a huge success and has helped to bolster the faltering fast-food giant.

Now, McDonald’s is looking to tag that success onto the little ones and will be introducing all-day breakfast Happy Meals.

McDonald’s will be testing the new Happy Meals — which will consist of either two McGriddles cakes or an egg and cheese McMuffin sans meat — in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Kids can also pick two sides: apple slices, yogurt, home fries, or regular fries (the latter is only available during lunch and dinner). If all goes well, it will be rolled out nationally in 2017.

“All day breakfast has really been a big hit with our customers, and that started from our customers telling us this is what they wanted,” Pam Williams, a director of innovation at McDonald’s, told USA Today. “Since the launch of all day breakfast, more of our customers have been reaching out to us and asking us for these choices for their kids In the Happy Meals.’’
