To mark the new school year, the 124 McDonald’s Restaurants throughout Southeastern Wisconsin offered one free full-size Fruit & Maple Oatmeal to all students from 6 to 9 a.m. on Thursday, Sept. 13, 2012. To take advantage of the one-day offer, students were required to be accompanied by an adult or show a student I.D. The Fruit & Maple Oatmeal is made with 100 percent natural whole grain oats and topped with about a half cup of fruit, including raisins, cranberries, and red and green apples. “McDonald’s is committed to the well-being of children in the communities we serve and offering our customers the best quality, on-the-go food choices to meet their everyday nutritional needs,” said Robert Pyles, local McDonald’s owner/operator and president of the southeastern Wisconsin co-op. “This back-to-school season we are excited to offer a hearty breakfast choice to children and help propel their academic success this new school year.” Pictured (from left) are student Angel Alexander, and owner/operator Monica Claypool of the McDonald’s on 1614 E.
