No Happy Meal for you!

While the gubernatorial races are going on, another important vote is going on by the San Francisco Board of Supervisors, the issue of the Happy Meal.

The bill passed 8 to 3 on Tuesday where Supervisor Eric Mar, a man who saw how many giveaway toys his daughter had that consisted of Happy Meal gadgets, imagined a bill
that could bring an end to the fatty fast food reported The New York Times.

Mayor Gavin Newsom is expected to veto the measure. If this bill passes and goes into effect in December 2011, according to The Wall Street Journal, San Francisco would become the first city to pass a law intended to control childhood obesity.

With the new bill, any meals will have to follow the fewer than 600 calories, fewer than 640 milligrams of sodium and less than 35 percent of calories from fat.

If restaurants do not comply, it only means no toys for consumes.
