COLORADO SPRINGS - Colorado McDonald's restaurants will give away a free breakfast to school children age 15 and under Wednesday morning. The promotion is designed to highlight the nutrition information contained in the Egg McMuffin and Egg White Delight McMuffin.
According to a news release, school kids who are accompanied by a parent or guardian can pick up a free McMuffin and a carton of milk or orange juice between the hours of 6:00 a.m. and 9:00 a.m.
"McDonald's owners, who are community members 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," said spokesperson Debbie Fitzgerald. "Studies show there is a strong link between a wholesome breakfast and better performance in school!"
