How Happy is the Meal You’re Paying For?

Check out this amazing new info graphic from Frugal Dad.  My jaw about hit the floor with the statistic that McDonald’s is the largest distributor of toys.  Imagine!  More than Toys-r-us. And the toys are of course a major contributing factor to kids buying them.  Their brains aren’t prepared to sort through what is persuasive advertising.

I love, love that San Francisco banned toys in fast food meals if they don’t meet healthy food standards.  I think we should do this nation wide if we are going to get serious about obesity and unethical marketing to kids.  There would be tremendous environmental rewards of banning these toys, too. Less plastic in the world.  Less exposure to children from questionable plastics. Win-win.
What do you think about this issue and the infographic?
