Food first, then toy. It's much easier to have the same rule every time than to try to take the toy away from a distracted child when they are used to having it....then the fit would happen. Usually fast food is something we only have on trips....so we save the toy to keep them occupied in the car afterward. I hate fast food restraunts and would rather not sit there a second longer than needed because my child is too busy playing with the cheapo toy instead of eatting. I think it's party a table manners thing for us as well. We don't allow toys at the diningroom table and home either.
