So…Now Toys Make You Fat
I’m appalled. Outraged. Disgusted. Repulsed. Should I go on? San Francisco wants to ban McDonald’s from putting toys in their happy meals. Whaaaat? Are you fucking kidding me? No, I heard it specifically on The Today Show this morning.
This is because they think the toy is a reward for a child eating an 800 calorie meal which in turn is making your child fat. Please folks wake up and smell the coffee. First of all making a healthy eating environment for your children should not consist of eating at a fast food restaurant on a regular basis let alone even once a week. The meal should be the reward in itself not the toy. So feeding your child an 800 calorie meal once a month as a reward for good behavior or good grades or good listening skills will not make a difference in your child’s healthy eating habits. If they even have one. And do you really think that taking that toy out will stop them from eating it. NO! Because that will just give them the excuse to get the big mac meal they really wanted in the first place but decided on the happy meal because of the toy.
FAST FOOD RESTAURANTS WERE NOT MADE TO BE LOW CALORIE.
Yes, they do have a low calorie menu but what kid wants fucking salad happy meal with a toy.
See this is what pisses me off. No one wants to take responsibility for their poor choices. They are always pointing their finger and blaming the other guy. If their children are fat it’s the fast food restaurants fault. If they get a DUI it’s the bartenders fault. If the government is falling apart after two years they blame it on the guy before them. Does it ever end.
I say keep the fucking toy in the box. If you don’t want you kid to eat 800 calories stay the fuck home.
Now if McDonald’s just puts a veggie burger in that big mac sauce and I’ll be good to go.
