Moms Manipulated Into Buying Unhealthy Foods

Children are treated to a buffet of television ads for juice drinks, cereals and snacks that feature fun characters and humor. And parents see almost as many commercials for children’s food products, but their ads promote nutrition and family togetherness, according to a new study.

Researchers looked through a database of all the TV advertisements for packaged foods and beverages in the United States between 2013 and 2014. They singled out the products intended for children as those advertised on Nickelodeon, Cartoon Network and other kids’ channels, and then looked for ads for these products that aired on other channels.
