Santa Clara (CA) County has enacted a ban on restaurants including a toy with meals that are high in calories, fat, and/or salt. The reasoning of the Board of Supervisors is that they must protect children. Apparently, they believe that parents are unable to make decisions about what food their child eats.
In my opinion the Board of Supervisors crossed the line. Their intentions may be good but it is not the governments responsibility to micromanage the daily lives of its citizens. What will be the next? Limiting television or other media allowed in homes? Government should stick with providing basic services and safety.
