The latest on food marketing to kids
The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation has a big project on marketing foods and beverages to children. Its most recent report singles out television advertising as the most pervasive medium; even babies watch TV and see loads of commercials for junk foods. The authors, Nicole Larson and Mary Story of the University of Minnesota, provide an excellent one-stop review of methods, expenditures, and other such data, along with useful suggestions for what to do about this problem.
