Sir: It is true that McDonald's targets children. Our four-year-old daughter was taken on a nursery trip to the newly-opened branch here. All the children could choose what they liked to eat, free of charge, and were given a "goodie bag" of crayons, etc, to take home.
Until then, our daughter had never heard of McDonald's. Now she shrieks with delight whenever she sees their logo. However, she has not asked to go again and, in any case, we would not take her.
