McDonalds: Happy Meals are Now Illegal in Santa Clara County

In Santa Clara County, California there is a new law that banishes McDonald’s Happy Meals because they promote unhealthy eating amongst kids due to the toys offered. There is a lot of controversy with the new law and some say it is wrong and that it should be up to the parents, not the county. Those pro happy meals argue that there have been changes in fast food companies that actually promote a healthy eating  like apple and milk options. Guess those arguments are just not good enough  because the vote won by one vote. The new law will be enforced in 90 days. I am sure going to miss those toys man. (Thx ABC News)
