Old news and I think CA had already passed something having the GG joints discontinue the 'toy' routine.

Makes sense to me

Between the chemical engineering design of the food and the toys, the kids have no chance to select something healthy over junk food.

I try to restrict Wendys/McDonalds/Jack/BurgerKing/etc to once a week myself especially after I watched a documentary called Super Size Me...

Believe it or not, telling kids no is a hard concept for some parents to understand.

What are you talking about??? The kids have no chance??? The kids have no job therefore they have no choice. They eat what you tell them to or they go hungry!

The problem is not the toys in the happy meals, it's the lazy parents running to McDonalds for food.

When we do go to Mc Donalds, maybe 2-3 times a month, my boys don't want happy meals they want a double cheese burger and fries casue that's what big kids eat.

Lol, I don't have any kids so I don't know! But thanks for the advice...

I think though kids should choose themselves to eat something else otherwise they will get obsessed with junk food when they get older...

Serious--ly....

I hope that stupid suit gets thrown out and laughed at. If you are too stupid to realize you control your kids and what they eat, not the otherway around. Then there is no hope for you... I hope McDonalds sues them for this stupidity and they have to pay all the court cost. This is a waste of time.

OMG! I tell mine the same thing. When you have a job, you can choose to eat what you want; until then, I'm cooking dinner and you're going to eat it.

Given the choice every child will choose sugar and fat over anything healthy. So, no, it's our jobs as the parents to feed them what they NEED. Kids get no choices.

It all depends on the amount of sacrifice a parent is willing to undergo during the first couple of years of a kid eating solid food. Early last year I was dating a single mom (which, for me, was a horrible idea for a whole host of reasons that have nothing to do with the content of this post) who completely changed her diet for her kids. She didn't keep a stitch of junkfood in the house. Like, seriously the worst thing she had was those fruit rollup/gummi things. The kids were brought up thinking that fresh fruit was a special treat. So when they chose the "worst" thing in the fridge they could possibly get their hands on, it was still pretty healthy.

It's what you HAVE to do for you kids. Unless you just don't care what they eat. I still don't buy sodas or junk food. My kids love to go to their friends' houses and eat their junk food.

Neitehr of my boys were ever all that...fond or interested in the 'kids meal', sure on occasion, but not often. More commenly they wanted the 'adult' sized portion or 'type' food.

That's what I am afraid of. As soon as they get a choice now and later in life, they will overindulge in food. If they have some freedom they might not be as obsessed with junk food. No?

Next it be be commercials. You can't have kids seeing on TV and wanting it. That means you would have to be a parent and say no. This gets way out of hand.
