After hearing some murmurs for a while, it finally happened. The Center for Science in the Public Interest is helping a California mother of two sue McDonalds to get the chain to stop using toys as a way to market their unhealthy foods to children.
This is definitely a story to watch. I’d love to see an end to kids’ meal toys—I think it would be a hugely positive small step in protecting children from unhealthy food advertising, but I can also think of several reasons someone might disagree with me on this one. What do you think about it?
