Let’s take a look at the best fast food kid’s meals going right now for the next time you want to keep the little ones happy.

Chick-fil-A Kid's Meal

Chick-fil-A has become a major player on the fast food scene and for good reason. The food is good and their customer loyalty is about as solid as it gets in the industry. The Chick-fil-A kid’s meals keeps things very simple with three different chicken options to keep the little ones happy.

There’s a 2-piece chicken strip option, 5-piece nuggets, or 5-piece grilled nuggets. Plus, they are currently partnered with ABC For Me to get in on a little reading with the meal. 

Subway Kids' Pak

The Subway Kids’ Pak has been around for last 20 years or so with options that are obviously going to be centered around the brand’s signature sandwiches. Currently, they have four choices for the tikes with Black Forest Ham, Roast Beef, Turkey Breast, or Veggie minis.

Each Subway Kids’ Pak comes with a pack of sliced apples and a drink. Everything the little ones need. This makes for a great option when bringing the whole family.

Burger King Kid's Meal

Burger King has mostly followed suit as well with what they are offering kids these days and their branding is part of what makes it easier to sell the meals. Currently, BK is partnered with DC and is offering action figures around the moe popular heroes in that universe including Superman, Wonder Woman, and Batman.

The menu options are standard with nuggets or burgers as the core offerings and apple sauce thrown in as a side. 

Wendy's Kids' Meal

Wendy’s Kids’ Meal follows the same path as the other big names in the fast food industry with their combination of smaller sizes around the brand’s signature offerings along with the standard toy aspect. Kids can get four or six piece nuggets or a burger option to with sliced fruit (or fries) and a drink.

Right now they are going the alien theme with the toy addition, offering miniature figurines having to do with the SmartLinks Astronauts brand.

McDonald's Happy Meal

This is the OG if the fast food kid’s meal options and has been kicking for the Golden Arches since the late 1970s. The McDonald’s Happy Meal has become somewhat iconic in this world for the menu options but also for the branding and toy giveaways associated with the orders. Heck, some of these have even gone on to become collector’s items. They are still keeping it simple with the options of burger or Chicken McNuggets along with fries and a drink.
