STOP THE MADNESS!!!
McDonald’s Happy Meal Toys … Public Enemy #1, good grief.
Could the wing-nuts on the LEFT be any more intrusive and insane these days? Now the meddlesome LEFT does not stop at banning foods, fats and salt … they want to ban Happy Meal toys. Will this nonsense ever end?
A county supervisor has created a stir with his proposal to bar the inclusion of toys in restaurant meals that contain high amounts of sugar, salt or certain fats.
The latest target in the battle over fast food is something you shouldn’t even put in your mouth.
Convinced that Happy Meals and other food promotions aimed at children could make kids fat as well as happy, county officials in Silicon Valley are poised to outlaw the little toys that often come with high-calorie offerings.
The proposed ban is the latest in a growing string of efforts to change the types of foods aimed at youngsters and the way they are cooked and sold. Across the nation, cities, states and school boards have taken aim at excessive sugar, salt and certain types of fats.
What business is it of a government to tell a private company how they are to market their product? Seriously, what is next … Kool-aide, cereal, juice? So these people are targeting a specific industry. Welcome to The People Republic of Santa Clara County.
Believed to be the first of its kind in the nation, the proposal would forbid the inclusion of a toy in any restaurant meal that has more than 485 calories, more than 600 mg of salt or high amounts of sugar or fat. In the case of McDonald’s, the limits would include all of the chain’s Happy Meals — even those that include apple sticks instead of French fries.
Supporters say the ban would encourage restaurants to offer more-nutritious foods to kids and would make unhealthful items less appealing. But opponents believe it amounts to government meddling in parental decisions. The Santa Clara County Board of Supervisors will consider the proposal Tuesday.
