A New York City official wants to put children’s meals on a diet.

A councilman has introduced the “healthy happy meals” bill. Under the proposal, kids’ meals that come with toys must have no more than 500 calories and 600 milligrams of sodium. They must also include a serving of fruit, vegetables or whole grains.

According to the McDonald’s online menu, only the chicken Mcnugget happy meal adheres to the bill’s proposed guidelines. The bill has to be approved by the city council’s health committee, then the city council, and then it will go to New York’s mayor.
