Abstract


  • This project will develop new evidence about the influence of unhealthy food marketing on children¿s food attitudes, choices and consumption behaviours. Children¿s exposure to unhealthy food marketing is recognised by leading international health organisations as a contributor to poor diets and overweight, and is a target for population health intervention. Outcomes from this project will contribute to national and international policy solutions for limiting children¿s exposure to unhealthy food marketing, by providing original information on the direct and sustained impact of food marketing exposures on children¿s overall food intake and dietary quality and the mechanisms that underpin this relationship.
