    Meh, it's one county in California. If the people that live there don't like the ordinance, they can complain and try to get it changed. It doesn't affect me one bit.

And guess what? It was probably a lot less expensive all these years for me to cook for him.

    The school pounds into the kids' heads to avoid sugar, fats, etc while the lunch room serves the most disgusting sodium laced crap. Because he eats well, is active and has a great metabolism, my son's ribs stick out. Do you have any idea how hard it is to get him to eat the opposite of what the "nutrition" experts at school keep saying?

    I'm sorry there are some kids out there with crappy parents. But gov't and schools stay the heck out of the lives of kids with responsible parents. We don't need you.
    I agree. It is necessary for the parents to monitor what their children eat especially with the stupid guidelines posted by the USDA, which takes a nonsensical approach to health and diet.
    As a product of the crappy cafeteria food system, I understand all too well the disgusting items cooks prepare and call "food". The thing is that it took me 3 years after I graduated high-school to wrap my head around it. Nobody took up the task to divulge information about the food we were being served.

    When I was a senior in high school I finally started bringing bag-lunch, not because I had a idea how horrible the cafeteria food was for students, but because I knew that I could make food at home that tasted much better than at the school.

    The biggest lie that's been spread about food is that someone can eat for cheaper at a Fast-Food restaurant than at preparing a home meal. That's complete buuuulllshiiittt

    Re: Citing Obesity of Children, County Bans Fast-Food Toys

    My kids aren't allowed fast food except on the rare occassion, normally road trips when I don't feel like stopping at a sit down resturaunt. That's just how it is.

    For those of you in support of this measure, let me ask you some questions.

    Why is it the fault of the Fast Food Co. that parents cannot say "No" to their kids?

    What does it matter to you if the Jones's eat at McD's every night?

    What RIGHT do you have to try force your view of proper parenting on free citizens?
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    The toys are the only part of the Happy Meal not making them fat.

    People just need to parent well. It's not McDonald's fault your kid is fat, it's yours. All these laws and blah blah blah, it's all consequence removal. And what do we get for it? More laws, more intrusive government, larger government, etc. It's all bull****. Let us take care of ourselves. And if we don't then that's the individuals own damned fault and they can go ahead and die of a heart attack at 40.

    Children respond to a reward system. Food comes and goes and a child's taste buds are quite low, one of the only real mechanisms to make fast-food "sticky" to a child is to present a toy everytiime they get a happy meal.

    AND?

    Whose fault is it the kid eats the food? The people selling it or the parents?

    Fault is the wrong term... who is responsible for the child consuming said happy meal. Fault makes it seem like a victimization issue for which they have no control.

    1) Because the Jones' obesity and/or health diseases that are from a high fat, high carbohydrate diet, especially if they eat at McD's every night will be paid by the tax payers because the Jones will not be capable of holding a job.

    2) I see a Jones parent that allows their children to eat McD's every night nearing child neglect. Don't think that a high sodium and fat diet won't kill your child. The liver can only sift thorough a certain amount of excessive nutrients and additives.

    Such a scare dangerous slope you sit on. Freedom and Liberty come second to you don't they?

    So you believe you have moral right to save children from their evil parents. Why have parents at all? Why not put children into Gov't run boarding schools. Really, it's the only way to ensure they are treated properly.
