Happy Meals are Healthy Meals

McDonald's, to my knowledge, has never actually said or claimed that Happy Meals are Healthy Meals, but given the success of its 25 years of promoting Happy Meals to children and their parents, the underlying message certainly isn't that Happy Meals are Unhealthy Meals. Celebrating 25 years of Happy Meals includes the fact that McDonald's now has "restuarants" in children's hospitals where doctors are stapling young stomachs of grossly obese children. As Einstein put it: "The world is a dangerous place, not because of those who do evil, but because of those who look on and do nothing." Just how much does it matter that our children's health is being destroyed?
