Really stupid if you think about it.. I mean the excuse of the parents is that they use toys to sell their unhealthy food to children..
let me state that again a little more clearly..
They (McDonalds) are using toys.. (cheap plastic gimmicks.) to sell unhealthy food.. (Your choice of a burger and fries, chicken nuggets, or apple slices, low fat milk, and salad.) to children (who obviously have control of their parents money..)
I have a 5 year old and a 4 year old..
They know what McDonalds looks like. They know what a Happy Meal is...
they don't control where we go to eat.. I could feed my children Manure.. So is it the Manure merchants fault cause he made the bag of crap look cool with mickey mouse on it? Not that he would.. terrible marketing strategy... but you understand what I'm saying...
Basically to start this law.. it took a bunch of parents, outraged at the company to get together and admit.. "We have no authority over our children." We don't want the government to tell us what to eat. But we want to tell restaurants what to sell..
PS: No Manure Merchants were harmed in the creation of this post... Hopefully..
