    County supervisors in California have proposed that toys included in fast-food restaurant meals for kids be banned, the Los Angeles Times reported.

    Officials in Santa Clara are convinced that luring kids into eating foods with high sugar, sodium and fat by using toys will make them overweight and cause long term health problems.
    This proposal is believed to the first of this type, and would ban the inclusion of a toy in any kids meal with more than 485 calories, 600 mg of salt, or high amounts of sugar or fat. These guidelines would cause all McDonald’s happy meals—even those with apple sticks instead of French fries—to be served without a toy.
    Supporters of the ban argue that it will force restaurants to offer nutritious foods to kids. Others have said this is another case of the government getting too involved in parenting decisions




    like seriously, whats next...are you going to govern how many hairs one is allowed to have on their ass at any given time???

    I didn't know kids who were of the age to enjoy those little toys were actually paying for the food themselves, or for that matter even getting to the food establishemnt by themselves.

    This is an attempt of legislators to say... It's not your fault your kids are fat. It's not bad parenting at all. It's the fast food companies fault. :rolleyes:

    Unbelievable. Get real people!

    It sounds stupid but nutrition is the leading cause of death in the US [ heart disease, cancers, and stroke ]. I find it childesh to take away the fun from kids that shouldn't be the case.

    Govt just took a shit on Californian Parents. Basically this says: Parents in California: You are pathetic pieces of shit that cannot take care of your own children, and therefore we will pass a law to help you retards out.

    My parents took our family to McDonalds everyone once in a while when we were kids. I quit taking my kids there because all they wanted was that dumb toy and they wouldnt eat the crap food anyways.
