Toys Banned from Some Fast Food Items

A California county has become the first in the nation to ban toys from fast food kids' meals high in calories, fat, salt and sugar.
The ordinance will ban restaurants from giving away toys with meals that have more than 485 calories, more than 600 milligrams of sodium, more than 35 percent of total calories from fat or more than 10 percent of calories from added sugar. It would also limit toy giveaways on single food items with more than 200 calories or more than 480 milligrams of sodium.

Restaurants will have a 90-day grace period beginning May 11 before the ordinance goes into effect.

  1. Santa Clara county! I am so proud!

  2. This really irritates me. It's stupid parents who don't know how to say no to their kids blaming anybody and everybody that they can! It's not the toys fault that kids are overweight, it's the parents that buy them the food in the first place!!
