 What are your thoughts about the McDonald's Happy Meals and that they offer a toy with the meal?

 (let's keep it nice Mommies ... everyone has the right to their own opinion. don't want to start an argument over it just want to hear your thoughts.)

 I give my kids McDonalds occationally. Maybe once every few months. They like the toys, and they enjoy the food. The key (just like with everything else) is moderation. If you allow you kids to eat McDonalds every day, they're gonna get fat.

 Well said ... McDonalds is considered a treat in our household.

I think it is a great treat in moderation of course, My dd gets a happy meal once a month, sometime twice.

Don't really have any thoughts. But DD isn't old enough to have those. We are planning on not letting her have it very often. We want her to grow up healthy and know what is good to eat and what isn't. We just really hadn't picked a time frame of how often yet.

well mcdonalds is gross in general but i am not going to lie and say me and dd never eat it but she doesn't get a happy meal she doesn't want it she hates fries and drinks water (her choice i would let her have sprite every once in a while) all she wants is a plain double cheeseburger.

 I think it's fine. They've done this for as long as I can remember. It's not like you have to purchase a happy meal, you dont even have to go to Mc Donalds :)
