“Adults can make their own minds up – I eat burgers from time to time so I’m not saying they are evil.

“But McDonalds are targeting kids and sport as a great way to get through to kids.”

Funny, I seem to have little problem making sure my son eats healthy. Maybe the Brits need a CCTV system inside every burger joint to monitor people’s intake of the fat laden tasty meat patties on a bun.
