Happy Meal without HAPPY

The city of San Francisco, California has recently voted on a proposition that banning the sale of food with too much fat and sugar that comes with a toy to the public. Mc Donald's Happy Meal is actually one of the directly affected of this proposition. A Happy Meal is consisted of a burger, fries, drink, and a toy. Consumers of Happy Meal are usually kids ( I cannot say "all" as my friends and I were actually once a fan of it hehehe...). 

Although the health buffs and small restaurants are happy about this news, not everybody accepted it with a healthy smile. Most of the parents who aired their opinions said that the choices of what their children should eat must be left to them. As a parent, I totally agree on this. The parents have the responsibility to decide what is the good for their children. With government dictating what to eat and not is some kind of dictatorship, where's freedom in there? I just hope that it will just stay in California, if not, no more "Love Ko To"

I totally agree with you. Even if the Happy Meal is aimed at children it will be the parents who actually buy it for them so it is up to them. Letting your children have a Happy Meal every now and then as a treat will probably do no harm. As long as you teach them what is healthy so that when they become teenagers they will know what to eat in "normal" proportions.

I actually live in California and where I live you get free happy meals when you buy a combo but you have to dine inside. I am about 45 mins from San Fran. Honestly I don't take to much stock into what people say here in Cali because I am only temporarily here. They should probably be dictating their governments spending versus happy meals this state is in a crisis majorly.

While I agree, the Parents are the ones who should be responsible....What if some parent's just don't know. Perfect example. I've read that when you're a kid, your parents always tell you to not leave the table until the plate is cleared. Studies have indicated that subconsciously, the reason why so many continue to eat what's in front of them even though they are full is because of this.
