McDonald’s offering free breakfast to all Colorado 3rd – 5th graders | Families
Colorado McDonald’s restaurants will be giving a FREE breakfast to 3rd - 5th graders before they take their TCAP Assessment Test the morning of March 6th. In an effort to help improve scores, McDonald’s is providing a free Egg McMuffin and milk or Minute Maid orange juice to children 11 and under accompanied by a parent/guardian.
The FREE breakfast is part of a daily allowance of nutrition and energy. The Egg McMuffin and 1% milk jug provides 400 calories, 14.5 fat grams, 26 grams of protein and 0 grams of trans fat. The Egg McMuffin and small Minute Maid orange juice provides 450 calories, 0 fat grams, 20 g of protein and 0 grams of trans fat.
McDonald’s owners, who are community member and parents themselves, know the importance of starting the day with a nutritious breakfast, which many children do not have before they start their school day.
While the TCAP test is given on a variety of dates for different age groups in the Spring months, March 6 captured the most 3rd – 5th graders in the largest school districts in the state.
