Ban Toys From Fast Food Meals?

Posted July 01, 2010 7:18 AM

Nutritionists are unhappy about the state of children's health today — the younger generation, they say, nurtured on fast food from convenience restaurants, are eating unhealthy diets. And, part of the reason may be the incentive to buy the food: the toys inside the packages. So, should the toys be banned? The restaurants argue that parents are responsible for making choices for their children, and there are usually healthier alternatives available. How do parents learn to fight marketing and make better choices for their children?

The preceding article is a "sneak peek" from Packaging & Labeling, a newsletter from GlobalSpec. To stay up-to-date and informed on industry trends, products, and technologies, subscribe to Packaging & Labeling today.

These toys target kids age 1 - 12 and as far as we know, these kids do not drive to these places on their own. Blame the adults that take them there, not the business for promoting their sales by advertising these items. They would stop if parents stopped taking their kids to get these products included with the "unhealthy fast food".
