Tell CEO Steve Easterbrook: Stop marketing junk food to children!

McDonald’s wants us to believe it’s modern and progressive -- without making any of the necessary changes to earn that description. That’s why we’re challenging McDonald’s power at the very heart of its global corporate operation today at its annual shareholders' meeting.

Stand with us today and tell McDonald’s CEO Steve Easterbrook to stop marketing McDonald’s junk food to children.

Introduction

What's New
San Francisco McDonald’s locations will stop giving away free toys with Happy Meals and Mighty Kids Meals as a new law aimed at child obesity takes effect Thursday.Instead, the massive fast food chain plans to sell the toys separately for 10 cents with a purchase of the children’s combos in its 19 stores in the Bay Area city.
McDonald's and other fast food chains will have to stop including toys in meals for children beginning tomorrow in San Francisco.The city will begin enforcing an ordinance that prohibits toys included in kids' meals that either contain more than 600 calories, don't include a fruit and vegetable, or include a sugary drink.
October 21, 2011
Contending that child-centered promotions of “unhealthy food” feed the national surge in childhood obesity, Corporate Accountability International held a news conference in Burlington Thursday and directed its message to Peter Napoli, whose Essex Junction-based Napoli Group owns 20 McDonald’s outlets in Vermont and New York.
