Guest: Marie Bragg, PhD, CLinical Psychologist and Assistant Professor in the Section on Health Choice, Policy, and Evaluation at New York University  Anyone who’s ever taken a child to a fast food restaurant knows how important those darn toys are in the kids meals. Little else seems to matter. Apples or fries? Milk or soda? Just get me that toy, is the look in a child’s eye standing at the counter of a McDonalds or a Burger King or a Wendy’s.  How might we put that obsession to work for the health of our kids? Officials in New York City are trying. They’re considering a measure to limit calories, fat and sodium in Happy Meals and the like.
