Because the promise of a toy is making the children fat!
The Center for Science in the Public Interest consumer advocacy group is threatening to sue McDonald's claiming that the fast food chain "unfairly and deceptively" markets the toys to children.
"McDonald's marketing has the effect of conscripting America's children into an unpaid drone army of word-of-mouth marketers, causing them to nag their parents to bring them to McDonald's," CSPI's Stephen Gardner says.
McDonald's has received this kind of criticism before and they have added healthier alternatives to their Happy Meals including apple dippers and lowfat milk.
Is a lawsuit really necessary?
Maybe the parents should be responsible for the amount of McDonald's their children are consuming?!
What do U think?
