2. McDonald’s Trims Its Happy Meal. OK, I’m sure no reader of my blog will jump for joy at this article, but do you think it’s a step in the right direction or a band-aid on an open wound? I tend to lean toward the latter. And the question I’m really interested in: how do you feel about toys in kids’ meals? I honestly don’t care one lick; it’s the quality of the food that interests me.
I can’t wait to hear your feedback!
