Mom Suing McDonald’s, Objects to Company ‘Getting Into My Kids’ Heads.’

A California mother -- with the assistance of a Washington, D.C.-based health advocacy group, Center for Science in the Public Interest – is suing McDonald’s because she wants the fast food company to stop including toys with their Happy Meals, the Washington Post reported. “I am concerned about the health of my children and feel that McDonald’s should be a very limited part of their diet and their childhood experience,” she said. “But as other busy, working moms and dads know, we have to say, ‘no’ to our young children so many times and McDonald’s makes it that so much harder to do.”

 

The mother continued, “I object to the fact that McDonald’s is getting into my kids’ heads without my permission and actually changing what my kids want to eat.” (December 2010)
