Overweight Pol Wants to Ban Toys From Happy Meals

• NBC News

A city lawmaker thinks free toys and other giveaways cause children to clamor for fast food, and he planned to introduce a bill Wednesday that will ban them from meals that fail to meet nutritional guidelines.

The bill would create an incentive for restaurants to cook up healthier options, Councilman Leroy Comrie said.

"If we can get the fast food companies to brand and create nutritious meals where children could receive toys, they would be just as excited," he said.
