Have you ever considered how happy a “Happy Meal” really is? At a first glance, the McDonald’s children’s meal might seem friendly and rightly marketed to children. However, after closer inspection, the Happy Meal could be perceived a great deal less amicable than imagined.
Although McDonald’s offers healthy options such as fruit bags or carrot sticks instead of fries and fruit juice instead of sodas, children eating the meals are not going to escape the unhealthy side of these meals. French fries are a huge seller for McDonald’s and are largely sold as part of their Happy Meals. Investigative journalist Eric Schlosser wrote his book “Fast Food Nation” in 2001. Here, the 54 year old reported that McDonald’s fries were cooked in 7% cottonseed oil and a phenomenal 93% of beef fat up until 1990. He elaborates on this, saying that, due to a high level of complaints, the fast food chain were forced to find an alternative method to cook its fries. So how has the company been able to maintain the taste of its critically acclaimed French fries? Schlosser reports that a mysterious “natural flavour” is listed among the ingredients of the fries. “And it’s made out of beef”, Schlosser reveals.
One of the reasons McDonald’s has been so successful with globalising itself is due to this unique taste which is so widely popular. However, health psychology research tells us that consistent consumption of food high in animal fats and low in fiber has been tied to heart disease, diabetes, colon cancer and breast cancer.
Chicken McNuggets and hamburgers, which are also featured in the Happy Meal, are high in sodium and low in fiber. This, health psychology also informs us, leads down the same path.
So how does McDonald’s brand such a meal as “happy” and make children desire its product? In becoming the global phenomenon that it is today, McDonald’s made sure to market to kids in a variety of ways in order to instil brand loyalty to them at an early age. A fictional world dubbed “McDonaldland” featuring characters such as Ronald McDonald were created to grab the attention of the youth in the same way that Walt Disney had used Disneyland and Mickey Mouse to do the same.
McDonald’s advertising that conveyed families bonding over French fries which led children to form associations between fries and McDonald’s with parental love.
Schlosser gives his two cents on the subject, saying that McDonald’s target children with imagery such as “bright colours, a playground, a toy, a clown, a drink with a straw, little pieces of food wrapped up like a present.” He also notes that music composers for Disney and a set designer for Disneyland were hired and used in creating melodies for McDonald’s commercials and designing parts of the “McDonaldland” set respectively.
Such marketing techniques have proven to keep children grounded to the McDonald’s label. Coupling the marketing with an approximate $1.2 billion that McDonald’s pour into its global advertising makes its product harder to run from for children. Taking into account also that there are over 35,000 McDonald’s restaurants worldwide makes every corner a little more likely to be followed by one of these fast food restaurants. With the not-so-happy meals, obesity and the aforementioned diseases are becoming almost the destiny of the youth that are stalked by the ever globalising company of McDonald’s.
