Happy or unhappy meals?



“Remember the days of going to McDonald’s to get a Happy Meal?  The paperboard box with games on the outside, the little box of cookies, the plastic toy?  Well those days are numbered in San Francisco.  No longer can a Happy Meal have a toy included unless the meal inside the box meets certain nutritional standards first.  Read the article on page 5B of today’s Times to get the skinny on the Happy Meal deal.  What do you think about the reasoning behind the toy ban?  Have you learned to make good eating choices in some similar way?  Share your thoughts with us on our blog.
