Who's in Charge?

Good evening,

I just read this article on Sparkpeople about Fast Food. The article talks about how McDonald's must stop putting toys in their kids meals because it will promote unhealthy eating habits in the children. This Parent's Group is also threatening to sue, if they don't.
I am all for healthy eating because I am working on it, but I don't think McDonald's is at fault. We are talking about children that don't work and have no true form of income, so these kids are not going on their own buying Happy Meals.
I also don't have children, but would it not be up to the parent to determine what their child eats and where it came from? Is the lure of a new Toy Story 3, Shrek, or any other movie toy that inticing that a child can get their parent to go to McDonald's?

What do you think?
