San Francisco has passed an ordinance that bans toys in fast food meals. San Francisco is the second county in Northern California to pass such a law. Santa Clara was the first.
San Francisco Supervisor Eric Mar introduced an ordinance banning these toys in meals that exceed 600 calories and for him this is a health issue. "One in five people in the United States of America are obese and in the U.S about half of the population is now overweight and some studies say it's over two-thirds of the population of the U.S.," he said. The ordinance would also require more fruit and vegetables and once that happens, the toys could be reintroduced.
Do you think banning toys is going to encourage parents to buy healthier meals for their kids?
