Assemblyman aims to make 'happy meals' healthier for kids

BROOKLYN - A Brooklyn assemblyman is looking to change "happy meals" to "healthy meals."

Assemblyman Felix Ortiz says he is sponsoring a bill to stop fast food restaurants from giving away toys, unless it's with a healthy meal.

A McDonald's spokesperson told News 12 Brooklyn that the company is not to blame and that taking away a toy is not a solution to childhood obesity.

Ortiz says the bill is in committee.
