A rotund city councilman [Leroy Comrie] who admits his eating habits are off the scales wants to make kids’ fast food meals less happy and more healthy.
The Queens councilman on Wednesday will press the Fast Food Toy Ban Bill, which limit any meal that comes with a toy to under 500 calories.
The argument can be made that fast food mega corporations play a major role in childhood obesity, luring kids toward unhealthy foods with flashy promos and exciting toy tie-ins.
And it’s no news flash that fast food is no good for you. But can we really place the blame solely on McWendyKing’s?
Are these evil chains softening your fast-foodie children like veal farmers, encouraging them to feast on high-calorie quick serve through flashy toys for their own financial gain?
Or is it that parents are just getting a little lazy?
Guess what: Regardless of what the corporations do, KIDS WILL ALWAYS LOVE TOYS AND NUGGETS!
It’s your job as a parent to control a child’s intake of both, until they’re adults. It’s completely normal for your overprotected little child to want burgers and Nemo toys, because they’re KIDS.
…Why not try and find some nice things to do together, that doesn’t involve food?
