    I'm confused here...the OP is claiming that they are controlling what people eat. How is taking a toy incentive out of the meal controlling their intake of the food itself?

    I say keep banning the toys...I've got a nice collection of them and would like to sell them on eBay someday. :lol::eusa_shhh:

    Hey, I'm a problem solver and have a solution...

    The chain could offer a healthy alternative meal...use a whole wheat bun, maybe a nice chicken or veggie patty, a healthy side like apples and milk to drink and put the free toy in that. Charge an extra .99 cents for the unhealthy meal with a toy and that gets 'em around the ban. Whaddya think?

    It's not. Their arguement is what they usually call a strawman.

    As absurd as I think it is to regulate happy meals, what is the harm if it is the will of the people of New York?
