Kids See Unhealthy Snack Ads

Food companies have been increasing their advertising to children for chips and other junk foods, even as marketing of healthy snacks such as yogurt has not kept pace, according to a report released on Monday.

About 40% of all the food and beverage ads children and teens see on TV are for snacks, and there’s a growing amount of snack advertising on social media and mobile phone apps, said researchers at the University of Connecticut’s Rudd Center for Food Policy and Obesity.
