Burger King to Put Low-Cal “Satisfries” in Kids' Meals
Burger King is jumping on the healthy kids bandwagon, by automatically putting its new crinkle-cut “Satisfries,” with 30 percent fewer calories and 40 percent less fat, into Burger King Kids’ Meals, touting that “they’re so good, kids won’t even notice that they’re low-fat.”
“By adding our lower fat, fewer calorie French fry to the Kid’s Meal as the standard fry, we are providing an option parents can feel better about giving to their kids, without children having to compromise on taste,” said Eric Hirschhorn, Chief Marketing Officer North America of Burger King, in a press release.
Now Burger King Kids’ Meals will offer a choice of a hamburger, cheeseburger or chicken nuggets served with a small drink (low-fat milk included), apple slices or the new Satisfries. In total, each kid-sized serving of Satisfries comes to 190 calories, 8 grams of fat, and 210 milligrams of sodium, which is 40 percent less fat than a McDonald’s serving of fries.
