It may be best known for its burgers – but McDonald’s has become the latest in a string of major food outlets to cater for our growing interest in a plant-based diet.
As millions join the ‘Veganuary’ campaign – giving up meat, dairy and fish for this month – the fast-food giant is today launching its first vegetarian Happy Meal for children.
It features a breaded red pesto goujon wrap rather than the burger or chicken nuggets that come with the standard Happy Meal. A similar goujon will also be served in the chain’s new Spicy Veggie Wrap on its main adult menu.
The new Happy Meal Veggie Wrap was created with the Vegetarian Society and the Britmums network, which put together a panel of parents and children to help choose the final recipe.
