The Rap is in response to these 2 articles Crane and I discussed on our “Faith & Fitness” segment:
1. McDonald's being sued over Happy Meals:
http://articles.latimes.com/2010/dec/16/business/la-fi-happy-meal-20101216 (Parents DO have the choice to exchange the fries for apple slices and the soda pop for milk).
2. The new Child Nutrition Bill giving USDA more control over school lunch program:
Such a shame that Blame is now the name of the game.
Penalties for Mickey D’s pushin’ toys n’ double cheese.
Sneakin’ snacks with Cracker Jacks – toy inside! – Better give it back!
Don’t be a fool at school eatin’ junk that ain’t cool.
If it’s to be, it’s up to me—it’s my own responsibility.
So choose a Happy Meal—or not! Choose homemade lunch appeal—or not!
Give us the Real Deal! Bottom line: Choose Life. Word!
