A group known as the Food Police is threatening to sue McDonald's for putting toys in a bag with burgers and fries.

A recent study found children think foods branded with cartoon characters taste better than the same foods without. However, McDonald's says Happy Meals are right sized for children and getting a toy is just one part of a fun, family experience.

What do you think about the concept? Are Happy Meal toys harmless or do you think they can lure children into a pattern of unhealthy eating?
