NYC Happy Meal Ban

2011_happy_meal1.jpgYesterday a NYC Councilman introduced a piece of legislation that will effectively ban happy meals at fast food restaurants in the area. Under the proposal, kids can only get toys with their junk food if the meal has less than 500 calories, 600 milligrams of sodium, and 35 percent of calories from fat. A similar piece of legislation was passed in San Francisco last fall. [NYP]
