Santa Clara County ban on fast food toys?

My biggest concern is with the logic that the toys drive children's decisions on what they want to eat. The underlying issue I have is that parents should drive the decision on what their children's options are - not the other way around.
I also find the decision riddled with hypocrisy as many of the jr high and high schools serve food that typically comes from a fryer. It seems to me if the county really wanted to make an impact banning fryers in public schools would be a more appropriate and effective step in achieving their goal.
