McDonald's to provide books with meals

Consumer groups criticise fast food giant's move to replace toys with books in "Happy Meals".

    Many are familiar with the McDonalds Happy Meal, which includes a toy for every child.

    But for the next two weeks, the fast food giant is planning to swap the toys for books across its US restaurants.

    The move has caused anger among some consumer groups, who accuse the company of encouraging children to eat unhealthy food.

    Al Jazeera's Stephanie Stanton reports.
