Kids can order Egg McMuffins or McGriddles for free in California.

Kids in kindergarten through eighth grade can get a free breakfast at participating McDonald’s restaurants in California on September 15.

The free breakfast includes either a breakfast sandwich and apple slices or Yoplait Go-Gurt low-fat strawberry yogurt along with milk. Each student is allowed one breakfast.

The offer will be available from 6:30 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. for one day only. Kids younger than 13 must be accompanied by an adult to redeem this deal.

“At McDonald's, we support parents in encouraging their children to eat a hearty breakfast every day,” Clay Paschen III, McDonald's owner–operator and president of the McDonald's Operators' Association of Southern California (MOASC), said in a press release. “We think our breakfast muffin sandwiches are a great-tasting option with fresh, healthy ingredients that children are sure to enjoy.”


Though this offer is only available for one day in California, McDonald’s will be offering breakfast all day long beginning in October.
