Un-happy meals?

There are some very unhappy kids in San Francisco.  That’s because lawmakers there want to ban happy meals that include a toy, unless they meet certain dietary standards.  Under the proposed guidelines, happy meals are required to have fewer than 600 calories and less than 640 grams of sodium.  So for example, if McDonald’s does not adhere to these standards, they’re not allowed to add a toy to their happy meals.   McDonald’s is fighting back saying this is “not what their customers wanted or asked for.”  A final vote is expected next week; if passed, the restrictions be in affect by December.
