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.

This series of briefings were for members of Congress and congressional staff only. The report was publicly released on December 6, 2005 and can be found, in its entirety, on the Web site of the National Academies Press.
