San Francisco to ban toys in unhealthy fast-food meals
San Francisco is the first major US city to approve a measure of this kind.
The law, which takes effect in December 2011, says children's meals including toys must have fewer than 600 calories and 640mg of sodium, and derive less than 35% of their calories from fat.
The ordinance was passed in a 8-3 vote by the city's Board of Supervisors.
The board passed the measure with enough votes to survive a proposed veto by Mayor Gavin Newsom.
