SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. (AP) -- Toys in fatty fast-food meals could soon be banned in San Francisco.

A law proposed Tuesday pertains to all restaurants, but it is clearly aimed at fast-food establishments like McDonald's, Jack in the Box and Burger King that include toys in kid meals.

The proposal bans including toys if the food contains too much fat, sugar or salt.

Earlier this year, nearby Santa Clara County adopted a similar law in unincorporated areas.

Supervisor Eric Mar, who proposed the San Francisco law, says the legislation is designed to encourage restaurants to offer healthy food options with kid meals.

The proposal also dictates that meals with toys include fruit and vegetables.
