McDonald’s China introduced space-exploration-themed food to their menu to celebrate Children’s Day.

International Children’s Day is a worldwide holiday declared by the United Nations to protect children’s rights and to honor the children who were killed by Nazis during World War II. The Shanghai China Salesian Society established Children’s Day in China in 1932 and have since been giving children under the age of 14 a day off from school to enjoy their childhood every June 1. Not only can children spend time with their family or go to Children’s Day events, they are also free to enjoy their favorite foods or try new ones, like the creative new menu inspired by the child-like wonder of space exploration.
