NWLL is proud to endorse and support McDonald’s of Wall / Belmar in their “Healthy Eating Campaign” for all the children in our community. The Healthy Eating Campaign includes being transparent about food, making improvements to the quality and health of their food, and to continuing to develop and provide healthy options.
Per the McDonald’s website, “We are part of every community in America and care about the well-being of all our guests, especially our youngest ones. So, our dieticians are working to evolve the Happy Meal® for the better by providing access to quality options. Such milestones mark our ongoing efforts to increase access to fruit and other nutritious food for kids in every community.”
This includes adding apple slices, a smaller kid-sized fry, and Yoplait® GO-GURT® Low Fat Strawberry Yogurt, and when in season, Cuties® as a fresh fruit choice. McDonald’s has also stopped promoting soft drinks as a beverage of choice in Happy Meals® and instead promotes apple juice and whole milk instead.

As a decision to support animal rights, McDonald’s has committed to only using cage free eggs as an entire system by 2025. All McDonald’s stores are now equipped with nutrition menus that are available to the customers to make informed decisions around food. Also, McDonalds.com has an amazing nutrition calculator for all items on the menu to be transparent around the food. https://www.mcdonalds.com/us/en-us/about-our-food/nutrition-calculator.html
The Chicken McNuggets are made with 100% white meat chicken, no artificial colors, preservatives, or flavors. The McDonald’s beef patty contains 100% beef with no fillers, additives, or preservatives. McDonald’s menu boards contain calorie information for customers to make informed healthy decisions.
McDonald’s of Wall / Belmar has also added Uber Eats to make food service convenient to this community. The Uber Eats program will deliver to the Wall / Belmar area which includes the North Wall Little League ballfields!
