Food Marketing to Children and Youth:
Threat or Opportunity?
Food Marketing to Children and Youth: Threat or Opportunity, an Institute of Medicine report sponsored by the Centers for Disease Control, examines the role that marketing of food and beverages may play as a determinant of the nutritional status of children and youth and reaches conclusions and recommendations on how marketing and other approaches might be marshaled to improve that status.
