McDonalds began serving up healthier versions of its Happy Meal Friday in Chicago.

Standard Happy Meals will now be served with fruit and french fries, and 1 percent milk or fat-free chocolate milk.

The caramel dipping sauce for the apples is gone.

And, if you want to substitute soda or double fries instead of the fruit, you have to request it.

The Oak Brook-based fast food giant says the new happy meals have about 20 percent fewer calories.
