San Francisco's Board of Supervisors has approved a ban on fast-food kids' meals with toys.Lawmakers voted Tuesday to override Mayor Gavin Newsom's veto of the ban. He had argued it was up to parents to decide what their kids eat.

Under the new ordinance, Happy Meals and other fast-food meals with toys must meet strict nutritional standards.

The law is the first of its kind in a major American city and goes into effect December 2011.
