McDonald’s Toys To Be Banned?

19 Oct

The health of our children seem to be in headlines everywhere these days. It’s an important issue that we here at The Big Toy Book feel very strongly about. So this week we wanted to dedicate some time to talk about how we can make nutrition fun and easy!

So we lined up some great toys that will encourage healthy eating as well as a Snack Time survival products that will help make snack time fun and managable… but before we get there- there is one nutrition story making headlines right now that we wanted to get your thoughts on.

That headline is- the proposal being made in San Francisco to ban Happy Meal toys.

We all know that fast food is not good for our kids, but those in favor of this ban feel that Happy Meal toys (as well as other fast food kid meals)  are encouraging the early onset of unhealthy eating habbits.

The people proposing this ban are feel if  these fast food chains add more fruit and veggies and limit the calories, these toys would then be acceptable.

We’re wondering- what are your thoughts?

Do you use these fast food toys as incentive to get your children to finish their fast food meals?

Would you be in favor of this ban being made in your state?

    Well, that would make sense if the toys were any good! When I was younger the toys were much better but now they are cheap and pointless. It’s really the responsibility of the parent to teach their children both healthy eating and self-control.

    McDonalds doesnt have to advirtise to kids who do not know any better. There should be age limits that can be targeted with this food we all know to be GARBAGE!
