Burger King Joins the Group; Will Stop Marketing to Kids (Sort of)
The last holdout, Burger King, says it too will stop marketing the worst of its junk foods to kids. This means it will only advertise kids’ meals that meet these criteria:
- No more than 560 calories per meal;
- Less than 30 percent of calories from fat;
- Less than 10 percent of calories from saturated fat;
- No added trans fats; and
- No more than 10 percent of calories from added sugars.
It’s agreed to cut back on some other practices too. A big step forward? Will this do any good? Let’s wait and see?
