pffffft thats dumb. reality of it is its the parents fault, time for parents to start being PARENTS and actually start feeding kids whats good for them, not what they want whenever they want it. Just another blame game, people saying oh its not my fault its theres. Well, parents, instead of taking the blame for letting their kids sit on the couch watching tv all day eating junk food would rather blame mcdonalds then take responsibility.

Yeah I'm a kid and I'm on here most of the time but am outside as much as possible when I'm not. But yeah i agree it is the parents responsibility to get the children some thing nutritious.

Kids should have parents not governments to control what they eat.

a toy does not promote obesity.
here is a funny thing.
i took my 2 year old to Perkins for breakfast.
the portion was so large that he couldn't even eat a 1/4 of it.
you know what they gave away with their kids meal?
A HUGE COOKIE.

now that i can see promoting obesity....LOL
i mean you can't even finish the meal and to top it off we want to force a huge cookie down your throat too.

i think as a parent i would prefer the toy.
i mean most happy meals give you the option of fresh fruit and milk along with the main dish.
they aren't as bad as they used to be.

That, and I dont know about you, but when I go to a fast food joint like McDonalds, 75% of kids there have to be forced to sit down to eat their food, otherwise theyd be off playing in the ball pit all day. I mean serious, at least mcds and burger king provide playgrounds where the kids can excersise and work it off (that is if you can get the kids to eat) like you said, perkins gives you a cookie, and no way to excercise!

While I completely jive with 'government shouldn't be involved in this', I think something has to be done about McDonald's marketing to kids. McDonald's definitely is waaaay too unhealthy. First of all, most of their burgers have some form of trans fat (synthetic fat that just clogs your arteries for fun). Second, what is up with all of those calories? I couldn't get 150 calories into a bun if I tried, but it seems pretty standard for McD's. They seriously must have a calorie press to mash calories into their food. And their processed cheese and beef is really nasty (and really fake!) if you take apart their burgers.
My underlying point is that their food is absolutely terrible for you, and yes, McD's is bribing kids with toys.
