They could argue that the crayons and paper were complimentary, and you do not need to buy a meal to get them.

Lol and mcdonalds can do the same. Just separate the toy from the meal.

so the meal didn't fill you...

did you have apple pies and ice cream afterwards? or muffins or any of the other McDonald's Desserts? (or indeed another meal only a couple of hours later?).

the burgers don't have as much sugar in then, nor as much fat as the ice creams likely, so even if kids just get a regular adult sized meal it won't be that bad,
it's not like kids are going to be eating super size portions.

at least they'll be full up and won't require desserts, or another meal only an hour later.

Mashed potatoes? These are usually loaded with butter.
