  • 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.

  • Hey I just put up what I seen on the news

  • Even making the toys illegal is stupid.

  • 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 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.
