    On Thursday, a New York City councilor asked, in an attempt to fight obesity among children, for the banning of toys in children’s fast-food menus, if the food does not meet certain nutritional criteria, AFP wrote.

    Democrat Ben Callos introduced a legislative proposal in a debate that seeks to ban toys and other gifts included in children’s fast-food menus that exceed 500 calories, in New York.

    The councilor also suggests that these menus contain less than 600 milligrams of salt, less than 35% fat and less than 10% sugar out of the total calories. The draft decision also aims at the inclusion of fruits and vegetables in children’s menus and limiting the calories of the beverages associated with these meals at 150.

    Restaurants that violate these new provisions will be fined anywhere between 200$ and 500$ for the first offense, and the fines will increase if the law is violated repeatedly.
