Happy Meal toy ban starts in San Francisco


SAN FRANCISCO — McDonald’s Corp., the world’s largest restaurant chain, will stop giving out toys with its Happy Meals in San Francisco starting Thursday because of a new city ordinance.

Parents will have the option to buy a toy separately for 10 cents when they purchase a Happy Meal or Mighty Kids Meal, a company spokesman said.

Restaurant meals in San Francisco can’t include a free toy unless they have less than 600 calories, contain fruits and vegetables, and have a beverage that isn’t excessively sugary or fatty, according to the city and county of San Francisco Web site.
