Toys banned from kids’ fast food in California county

BEIJING, April 29 (Xinhuanet) — California’s Santa Clara County has become the first county in the U.S. to ban toys as rewards or promotion from fast food children’s meals, foreign media reports.
Childhood obesity in the U.S has tripled in 30 years and two thirds of adult Americans, or 190 million people, are overweight.

“This ordinance breaks the link between unhealthy food and prizes,” the county supervisor Ken Yeager said, adding: “It helps parents make the choices they want for their children without toys and other freebies luring them toward food that fails to meet basic nutritional standards.”
