On a diet

It’s happening as you read this:  McDonald’s is rolling out healthier Happy Meals.

Count the fries: they are shrinking from 2.4 ounces to 1.1 ounces.  Filling that gap will be a serving of apple slices, carrots, raisins, pineapple slides or mandarin oranges.

Cows must be getting skinnier, too:  your child can order 1% milk or low-fat chocolate milk.

Who will be happiest with the  Happy Meals?  Parents? Kids? Michelle Obama?  The jury is lined up to vote at the register.
