    Oh, those wacky Californians, conditioning children at an early age that it's ok for the governement to tell you what to eat.

    McDonands is not conditioning anyone. Little kids do not have jobs, do not have transportation and are in the care of their parents or legal guardian. So it is the parents that condition their kids seeing how it is the parents that decide what their kids can and can not eat.

    McDonalds should tell them where to go by closing up shop.

    I'd rather see responsible parenting do the conditioning. Neither of my two children have ever eaten at a McDonald's.

    Do little kids have jobs so they can have money to buy happymeals? Do they have their own transportation so they can go to McDonalds whenever they want? Is it the children's job to make choices in what they eat? The answer to all these question is no. So it is irrelevant what McDonalds advertises to them because it is the parent's choice to say no. Advertising doesn't mean squat except trying to put their name out there to consumers. Are you so weak willed as a parent and a pushover with the word bitch written across your forehead that you let tell your kids make all the decisions that you are supposed to so you want the government telling you what you can eat and whether or not certian places can give out crappy toys to those who buy their childrens meals?

    Nagging from children is a well documented factor in the purchase of almost anything

    A few incompetent parents or guardians does not change the fact it is still the parents or guardian who make the choices in what their kids eat. If a child does not stop pestering or nagging for something after being told no then punish the child, its that simple. You need to assert your authority as the parent aka the boss of the child, not have the government do your job for you.

    And the well-documented solution to nagging is to pass government programs prohibiting the sale of said item. That's just smart parenting.
