In a continued effort to advise Boston and Massachusetts parents of trends affecting their children, the Boston Law Office of Neil Burns is posting this article regarding fast-food toys, like those found at McDonald’s, being banned in San Francisco. Since 1985, the attorneys at the Law Office of Neil Burns have represented children injured in accidents. We always seek to provide information to help keep children in Boston and throughout Massachusetts safe and healthy.
With a 25% child obesity rate, the politicians in Santa Clara County banned fast food restaurants from giving away toys unless the meals meet national nutritional standards. While we don’t promote one political decision over another, we do promote education of consumers. This measure, especially if it is fought by the McDonalds of the world, will get publicity and perhaps educate parents and children of the dangers of obesity.
Considered the first law of its kind we urge Massachusetts consumers to follow the news on this important issue.
