Happy Meal

 Recently, Ella experienced a rite of passage...her first Happy Meal from McDonalds.  Just to reassure those of you who are cringing, please be assured that we almost never eat fast food.  In fact, this is probably the first time I've been to a fast food joint this year. 

But I digress.

We went through the drive through and got her a chicken nugget meal with apple slices. 

I cut her nuggets up so that they would cool off enough to eat.

and I spread out her apple slices...notice the little bites in them...

...but of course, all she was interested in was the toy!


At this point, I was thinking about how much healthier these happy meals were than the ones that I ate as a kid.  Apple slices instead of french fries?  Awesome! 

And then, right when I was about to throw away the bag, I noticed something.

What is that?

Caramel Dip?  Seriously?  NOT COOL.  What's the point of feeding your kid apples if they're covered in sugar?

Oh well.  I guess that's why they're called Happy Meals instead of Healthy Meals.
