    Big Food vs. Little Kids: The Real Story Behind Food Marketing to Children and What Parents Can Do

    As rates of childhood obesity and diabetes climb, the food industry has come under intense pressure to stop promoting unhealthy foods and beverages to youth. In an effort to stall government regulation, the industry has formed self-regulation groups and pledged to improve practices. In this talk, Dr. Marlene Schwartz will present research documenting the harm caused by food marketing to children, how much marketing is still being done, and the critical role of parent advocates to stand up to Big Food.
