Description
There is little doubt about the influence of food and beverage marketing on children. Marketing to children is a big business. Obesity is a major concern nationwide. Overweight and obese children and adolescents are at greater risk for high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and Type 2 diabetes. They are also at higher risk for being obese as adults. Children’s diets are inadequate in consumption of fruits/vegetables and dairy products.
