“You want the very best for your kids, and so do we.”
“McDonald’s is the stranger in the playground handing out candy to children.”
Can you guess which one came from McDonald’s corporate? The Center For Science in the Public Interest, a consumer watchdog group is threatening to sue McDonald’s if they don’t stop luring kids to their kids’ meals using toys. (Can you lure *to*? Wouldn’t it be lure *into* buying?) Either way, they want it to stop now I say! Although some kids seem to be okay with them, is the need here to protect the ones who don’t know better, or to promote healthy eating for everyone? If it’s a case of the latter, then where do you draw the line. Based on that logic, shouldn’t celebrities, movie studios and athletes also be prohibited from promoting *to* adults the fine dining experience offered by the industry?
