Children in California will still be able to get toys with their Happy Meals.
A California mother of two and The Center for Science in the Public Interest are suing McDonald's Corp. to get the fast-food chain to stop using toys to market meals to young children.
"What kids see as a fun toy, I now realize is a sophisticated, high-tech marketing scheme that's designed to put McDonald's between me and my daughters," said Monet Parham of Sacramento, Calif. "For the sake of other parents and their children, I want McDonald's to stop interfering with my family."
