(MCDONALD'S/CNN) - McDonald's is dumping Minute-Maid apple juice from its Happy Meals.

The fast-food chain said that starting in November, Happy Meals will include an organic juice made by Honest Kids, a brand which has less sugar.

McDonald's is making the change after hearing from parents who said they wanted a healthier drink choice for kids.

The Happy Meal has seen other changes in the past, including smaller French fry portions and the addition of apple slices.

A non-profit that tackles childhood obesity said McDonald's could do more, like rotating in different fruits to expose children to a variety of healthy foods.
