This freebie definitely makes the grade in our book. On Wednesday, September 9 from 6 a.m. to 9 a.m., McDonald’s is giving students in grades K to 8 a good start with FREE breakfast. Students get apple slices and their choice of an Egg McMuffin or Egg White Delight McMuffin and milk or Minute Maid orange juice. (Sorry, no substitutions.) It’s an effort by local McDonald’s owners to highlight the importance of a good breakfast for children. The freebie is also sponsored by the Western Dairy Association and Minute Maid. The promo is available at all Colorado McDonald’s locations — while supplies last. The offer is only for students under 15 years of age, who must be present and accompanied by a parent or guardian.
