Burger King has revamped their familiar kids’ crowns, attached them to their new BK Crown program boxes for kids’ meals and used the new meal containers to help teach our kids about giving, about eating a “little” better and that learning can be fun. Burger King isn’t beating our kids over the head with any of those messages, but I really like the direction they are taking with this new program!
Obviously, a fast-food kids’ meal will never be the healthiest alternative for dinner, but I like that these meals still taste good and are pointing our kids in the direction of making wiser choices. They can still get the traditional fare, but they can also choose chicken tenders with apple slices and milk or a hamburger with apples slices and juice. There’s even an option for breakfast — maple oatmeal, apple slices and milk. Changing up even one or two of our fat- or sugar-laden food options for a healthier alternative, can make a difference and encourages our children to keep making better choices.
The BK Crown Program is a great way to teach kids about giving, too. Each box comes with a printed code and three options for your child to think about and select from. They can visit the BK Crown website and choose which of the three, they would like Burger King to make a donation to. Kids learn what the charities are all about and make decisions about where to direct their charitable giving. They cast their vote for the charity they like most.
The website and the new kids’ meal boxes are also loaded with fun and challenging, “make you think” games and puzzles for kids to enjoy. Meals still come with a toy surprise and kids can find out what it will be by visiting the website. Parents are invited to be involved at BK Crown, too. Sign up for an account and be kept up to date on what your child is doing while on the site.
For a limited time, Burger King is even offering a BK Crown Family Meal Bundle. It includes: a Whopper, a Whopper Jr., two small fries, two small drinks, AND a kid’s meal all for only $9.99! That’s definitely budget-wise if you’re planning dinner out.
