VIDEO POLL: Banning Happy Meals???

happymeal VIDEO POLL: Banning Happy Meals???

Watch Gary and Lisa’s report on CBS 2 from this morning, then take the poll!

San Francisco just became the first U.S. city to pass a law that requires happy meals at McDonald’s to meet a certain nutritional standard in order to pair it with a free toy. The law now requires meals to only give away toys with meals that have less than 600 calories, contains fruits or vegetables and includes beverages without excess fat or sugar.

“We are extremely disappointed with today’s decision. It’s not what our customers want, nor is it something they asked for,” McDonald’s spokeswoman Danya Proud said in a statement. “Getting a toy with a kid’s meal is just one part of a fun, family experience at McDonald’s.”

Now take the poll!

    My kids and Grandson grew up with Happy Meals. None of them were or are overweight, and there were never any choking problems.

    How can we legalize marijuana and ban Happy Meals??

  • Mikey

    It’s stupid beyond words to try and ban Happy Meals. If anything, that would probably decrease sales at McDonald’s and make little kids mad. It’s ludacris to set a calorie standard for kids meals. I grew up on Happy Meals and they never hurt me. What a bunch of crazies up there in ‘Frisco who are trying to regulate the calorie standards of a tiny hamburger and fries.

    I am an adult and old enough to make good decisions for my child. I do not need the government stepping in on something as stupid as this!
