Acording to this interesting article, San Francisco bans Happy Meals.
Of course, the Happy Meal isn’t what’s being banned, just the current form of the thing, which is a toy to bribe kids into eating crap. Apparently McDonald’s food is so terrible that you have to convince a 4 year old to eat it. Uh huh. Under the new rules, toy distribution will be linked to fruits and vegetables, and if you have too many calories, sugars, or fats in the meal, then you can’t have a toy, because apparently the grease is the toy.
IMHO that is really nice. I wonder when this ban will spread and eventually come to Europe…
What do you think?
