In her best Bloomberg impression, mayoral candidate Christine Quinn proposed healthier children’s meals at chain restaurants on Monday.

If elected in, the City Council Speaker announced her plans to make chain restaurants incorporate restrictions on kids’ meals more in tune with the regulations issued by the U.S. Department of Agriculture for school lunches.

Although Quinn was opposed to Bloomberg’s soda ban, she says her plan is different because parents can still buy their child a happy meal and it insures the ordered food is actually healthy.
