This report from the Federal Trade Commission provides the results of a comprehensive study of food and beverage industry marketing expenditures and activities directed to children and teens. It gauges the progress the industry has made since first launching self-regulatory efforts to promote healthier food choices to kids. The study serves as a follow-up to the Commission’s 2008 report on food marketing requested by Congress. Also included in the report is a detailed analysis of the nutritional profile of foods marketed to youth. (Imprint: Nova)
