BAN THE HAPPY MEAL ! ! !

California County Wants to Ban Happy Meals
Ban the Beanie Babies ! ! ! They are high in calories.

Ken Yeager, a Santa Clara County,California supervisor who is behind the effort to ban Happy Meals, says the toys in kids' meals are contributing to America's obesity epidemic by encouraging children to eat unhealthful, fattening foods.

"People ask why I want to take toys out of the hands of children," said Yeager, who is president of the Santa Clara County Board of Supervisors. "But we now know that 70% of the kids that are overweight or obese will be overweight or obese as adults. Why would we want to burden anybody with a lifetime of chronic illness?"
