Free breakfast at McDonald's for students taking FCAT on Monday


McDonald's restaurants will be offering a free hot breakfast to Florida public school students in grades 3 through 11 taking the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test (FCAT) on Monday, April 16.

From 6 a.m. to 8:30 p.m., kids can get a free Egg McMuffin, Apple Dippers, milk or a small orange juice at participating restaurants. Children 15 and younger must be accompanied by an adult.

More than 800 Florida restaurants are participating, with more than 175 offering the promo in South Florida.

This is the third year the chain has offered the FCAT promotion. In 2011, more than 120,000 students got free meals before taking the test, which is administered through April 27.
