Mother Lashes Out at San Francisco About the Happy Meal Toy Ban

“When I stop at McDonald’s to buy a Happy Meal for my kid or any other kid who happens to be in my car it has nothing to do with the toy. It has to do with the fact food comes quickly, I know they will eat it, and there is often a playground on the premises. If any of the ‘slow food,’ ‘whole grain’ restaurants met those criteria, and didn’t look at children like they are vermin, we would go there. And the toys you claim are so tempting? Usually they end up in the recycling bin after sitting in my car for two weeks. Really, they suck.” — TV producer Libby Mitchell, writing an open letter in defense of the Happy Meal, toy included, following the S.F. Board of Supervisors’ decision last week to ban them. [HuffPo]
