S.F. Mulls Banning Toys in Certain Restaurant Meals
Eric Mar, a member of the San Francisco board of supervisors, is sponsoring legislation that would prohibit city fast-food chains and other restaurants from including toys in meals that contain excessive amounts of fat, sugar or salt. The proposal would limit toys to meals that meet certain nutrition guidelines, such as menu items that include fruit and vegetables. The California Restaurant Association opposes the legislation.
