San Francisco Bans Toys in Happy Meals

It’s a sad day for McDonald’s Happy Meals -- at least in San Francisco. On Thursday, the city’s board of supervisors voted to ban restaurants from giving away toys with kids’ meals that are loaded with calories, fat or sodium. They are the first city to pass such a law, which, legislators say, is in part an effort to help clamp down on childhood obesity.
