As a staunch proponent of healthy meals for kids, I was appalled by this article in which local governments are intervening on behalf of the innocent kids that are sold toys to entice them to eat at McDonalds. By luring kids with toys, they are more inclined to want to eat the food that is partly responsible for the obesity epidemic in the younger population. Is government regulation the solution? Shouldn’t parents be more conscious of what they feed their kids? What an awful situation. Unfortunately, the food is cheap and super-convenient. The tragedy, in my eyes, is how some families associate going to McDonalds as a treat. Please… won’t somebody pass the veggies!
