Battling the deceptive fast food industry

Hats off to the city of San Fran!  It became today, the first major American city to prohibit fast-food restaurants from including toys with children's meals that do not meet nutritional guidelines.  

Also, and again, Kudos to city officials in Santa Clara (CA) who passed legislation 6 months ago banning fast food restaurants from handing out promotional toys ~ because this business practice is predatory and wrong. 

The San Fran city ordinance goes into effect in December of next year. It prohibits toy giveaways in fast-food children's meals that have more than 640 milligrams of sodium, 600 calories or 35 percent of their calories from fat. The law also would limit saturated fats and trans fats and require fruits or vegetables to be served with each meal with a toy. 

This important decision to enforce healthier choices is a big step in the right direction. In our October 19th entry on the Deceptive Fast Food Industry, we explained that obesity costs us $147 billion per year. The fast food industry is being blamed for the atrocious national obesity rate in America. Fast-food restaurants spent $161 million advertising to children under 12 and an estimated $360 million on toys distributed with their meals in 2006, according to a 2008 Federal Trade Commission report.

Until this ordinance goes into effect, parents must learn to Just Say NO!
