Fast-food restaurants that had to comply with a ban on toys in children's meals showed a threefold improvement in scores relating to the promotion of healthy food options for children, compared with no significant changes in restaurants that didn't have to comply, Stanford University researchers found. "They provided better on-site nutritional guidance," study researcher Jennifer Otten said. The findings were based on menu options from eight restaurants in California.
