Happy Meal Toy Ban Catches On In NYC

Happy%20Meal.jpgSome national opinion makers may poke fun at our SF Supervisors' beloved Happy Meal toy ban. But others, like New York City Councilman Leroy Comrie think it's a fine idea. Comrie is attempting to pass a similar ordinance in NYC. His proposed qualifications for meals that get to keep their toys are 100 calories stricter than those in San Francisco! "By ensuring that toys are only given away with meals which meet the nutritional guidelines set out in this bill, children will be more likely to pick the healthier meals when they do visit fast food restaurants," says Comrie. The National Restaurant Association continues to think it's all ridiculous. [City Insider]
