Food Diary (April 05, 2012)
Breakfast: Sourdough toast
Lunch: Pasta with chicken and mushrooms
Dinner: Pasta with lentil and spinach
Baking/sweets: Cornetti, chocolates
Today I had a cornetti for the first time. It looks like a croissant but less buttery. I am not sure if it is supposed to be less buttery. It was filled with lemon vanilla cream. I think I prefer plain vanilla cream

McDonalds happy meal remains happy.
In San Francisco a lawsuit was brought against McDonalds for unfairly using toys in its Happy Meals to lure children into its restaurants. The lawsuit was dismissed.
Public health officials, parents and lawmakers have been frustrated with rising childhood obesity rates and weak anti-obesity efforts from restaurant operators.
The article didn’t mention any link between McDonalds meals and obese children. This would be hard to prove. The decision could be appealed. In the meantime, parents and children might as well consider other ways to manage obesity.
The Happy Meals makes McDonalds one of the world's largest toy distributors.
