Shoutout to San Francisco. Aside from capturing the World Series, SF is winning for their progressive outlook on life, culture and society. Recently the San Francisco Board of Supervisors agreed to ban the sale of happy meals at McDonald’s restaurants. The ordinance marks the first time a major city in the U.S. has banned restaurants from offering toys with high-calorie meals that contain significant amounts of fat and sugar.
While the ban limits the sale of toys, the ordinance doesn’t ban toys from being served with happy meals altogether. If the total calories of a meal add up to less than 600, and under 35% of the calories come from fat, toys can still be given out with McDonald’s meals. Although a bit lenient, the ban still drastically effects the sale of happy meals, where a cheeseburger, small fry and drink add up to 640 calories.
