Study: Kids pick nutritious Happy Meal when no toy offered with less healthy option
from Vancouver Sun
Children are far more likely to pick a healthier fast-food meal when promotional toys are offered only with those menu options and not with less nutritional fare like burgers, fries and a pop, a study has found. Canadian researchers set out to see which McDonald's Happy Meals that kids age 6 to 12 would choose when toys were included with healthier menu combinations, but not with standard offerings that are typically higher in fat and salt.
