(KMOX) - Will your kids still be happy with the new Happy Meals? 

McDonald's is removing cheeseburgers from its Happy Meal menu, as the chain works toward following global limits for calories, sodium, saturated fat and added sugar in the popular children's meals.

Reuters reports that cheeseburgers will still be available as a Happy Meal option, but only by request.

Other changes announced Thursday include a smaller French fry portion size for the six-piece chicken McNugget Mighty Kids meal, bottled water as a Happy Meal drink option and chocolate milk being offered only by request.

By the end of 2019, McDonald's also hopes to be able to offer books instead of toys as a Happy Meal treat option in 100 markets.
