San Francisco Burger Kings, McDonald's charge for kids meal toys

Posted: Updated:
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -

Burger King has joined McDonald's in charging for kids meal toys to comply with San Francisco's ban.

A new city law that took effect Thursday bans free toys with kids meals that are high in fat, sugar and salt. It's designed to encourage nutritional fast food for youngsters.

McDonald's and Burger King decided to charge a dime for the trinkets.

McDonald's is using the toy money to build a Ronald McDonald House for families of young patients at the new University of California, San Francisco, Medical Center at Mission Bay.

Burger King spokeswoman Kristen Hauser tells the San Francisco Chronicle that Burger King hasn't decided what to do with the toy proceeds.
