On Tuesday, Taco Bell announced that it will discontinue kid’s meals and toys at its U.S. restaurants, becoming the first national quick service restaurant chain to do so. Select restaurants will begin the removal in July, with nationwide implementation anticipated by January 2014.

“As we continue our journey of being a better, more relevant Taco Bell, kid’s meals and toys simply no longer make sense for us to put resources behind,” said Greg Creed, chief executive officer of Taco Bell. “What does make sense is concentrating on expanding choices that meet and exceed the diverse needs of consumers of all ages, without losing focus on what makes us great today.”

Kid’s meals are not part of Taco Bell’s long-term brand strategy and have had an insignificant impact on system sales.

“Pioneering this change on our menu is a bold move for our industry, and it makes sense for Taco Bell,” said Creed. “We’ll be able to better focus on creating new and inventive items that our customers love.”

Menu items on the current Kid’s Meals Menu will remain available individually on the regular menu, including the Crunchy Taco, Soft Taco, Bean Burrito and Cheese Roll-up.
