San Francisco Bans Happy Meals

Written by mindbodygreen

It's been a bad week for McDonald's. Earlier, a Brazilian judge ordered the fast-food chain to pay for making an employee fat. Now, San Francisco has banned Happy Meals. 

Going forward, if McDonald's wants to include a toy with a meal purchase, the meals must meet these nutritional requirements (PDF):

  • The meal can't exceed 600 calories
  • Less than 35 percent of the calories can come from fat (nuts, nut butters, low-fat cheese excepted)
  • It's required to have a half cup of vegetables
  • Breakfast meals are required to have a half cup of fruit
  • Sodium limits
  • A multigrain requirement
