“We took the children for their first McDonald’s on Sunday. I explained to our server about my son’s allergy and asked whether the children’s Happy Meals were nut safe. She went away to check with her supervisor and returned with a laminated card, showing that none of the Happy Meal variations had peanuts or tree nuts as an ingredient. As regards cross contamination, I was advised that the only food containing nuts were some types of McFlurries, and that these were kept in sealed packs. It was all very straightforward and reassuring and I’m so glad we now always have a kid and allergy friendly fallback option when out and about in the UK.”

“Another smooth visit to McDonald’s at the Trafford Centre in August. On the couple of occasions we’ve visited, my usual opening line is something like ‘My son has a severe peanut and nut allergy, are your chicken nugget happy meals still nut free’. Each time, a supervisor / manager comes over with an allergen sheet, and shows me that there are no peanuts or tree nuts in the happy meals. We go to McDonald’s as an occasional treat and it’s great to have somewhere that’s safe, with branches everywhere across the UK.”
