Food marketing has a huge impact on what your child chooses to eat.
Food marketing is when companies use media to influence the buying decisions of consumers, in this case, children. They will give enticing reasons to children why they should want a specific type of food. In most cases, the foods marketed to children are high sugar, high fat, high calorie foods that have little if any nutritional value.
Companies will use the television, radio, internet, magazines, promotional campaigns associated with movies and video games, attractive packaging, toys and any place they can place their logo or brand.
