What do you think about Happy Meals being Illegal?

I kinda think it's stupid. I don't feel like getting a happy meal every so offen his gonna make a kid over weight. And I like it when they give the good toys..like now..lol
Whats your thoughts on this.

  • Happy Meals being made illegal would be just another excuse for people to blame others for obesity problems and not recognize self control is the issue and not fast food. In fact we are taking the kids tonight to get happy meals before the circus and I don't know which they are more excited about. Fast food is a rare treat in this house.

  • I think if it's a sometimes treat it's not a big deal. That's how I do it for my son - for an occasion or a treat. I can't have him eat them all the time.

  • I think it's absolutely ridiculous. If people would control their eating and not feed their kids Happy Meals almost every day, it wouldn't be unhealthy. There is nothing wrong with an occasional Happy Meal.

  • I think is a great idea. No one needs them, they are made with a substance to hook you and the kids to come back for more..as the kids age they need a bigger portion.....besides is not just about the weight...but the health. About the toys...visit a toy store ... you'll be surprise how nice little things you find there.
