    The fact is that people are going to buy happy meals for their kids whether you like it or not. At least a book is a lot more positive than a crappy toy.

    People can eat what they want. I am sure there are plenty of people in this forum that when posting about the evils of food are sitting at their computer smoking a cigarette.

    Smoking a cigarette, drinking a pepsi, cooking a big pot of sausage/meatball spaghetti and trying to decide between blueberry pie or ice cream for dessert.

    That being said - good for McDonalds!! That's an absolutely brilliant idea.

    McDonalds now gives you the info you need to decide if you want to get fat - the calorie counts are right on the menu. You don't think I've bought a grilled chicken or two I didnt want when I read the double quarter pounder calorie count? Why does that sound so good... mmmm double quarter pounder...

    Turkey sammich for dinner folks. Cut me some slack.

    I have a 14 yo daughter who, before she turned 13, would basically order what I did, plus a coke and a sundae. Now she looks at the calorie count, gets a small cheeseburger or grilled chicken and a diet coke.

    While I don't want her to stress about body image (she's in good shape, but try and tell a 14 year old girl that!!) i'm glad she understands that her life will be about choices. The Mc menu reinforces that.

    It's probably 70% marketing, PR and keeping ahead of the regulators, but it works.

    That's crazy! Why wouldn't you just put ice cream on top of the pie ;)

    "I'd quit smoking, but I don't wanna gain any weight" :bricks:

    O.....K, sure, that makes sense!!!:eek:
