Supes look to take the toys out of Happy Meals

Supervisor Eric Mar is not happy about the toys used by some restaurants to entice children to eat what may not be the healthiest of foods.

So he has proposed legislation that would prohibit any “incentive item,” defined as any toy, game, trading card, admission ticket or other consumer product, to accompany food if the food contains excessive calories, sodium or fat. For example, sodium couldn’t be more than 640 milligrams for the entire meal. Also, the meal would have to contain certain levels of fruits and vegetables. Enforcement would be up to the Department of Public Health.

The Board of Supervisors Land Use and Economic Development Committee plans to vote on the legislation Monday at its meeting at 1 p.m., at City Hall in Room 263.
