Junk Food Ads & Youth

By November 8, 2019Community, Tara Lopez

A new study that was posted on The Health Site reveals that kids who view even just one extra junk food commercial a week, eat an additional 350 calories in foods that are high in salt, sugar and fat every week. Yikes!

Researchers tell the site; “Junk food marketing is associated with obesity in young people.”

40% of teens and tweens apparently feel the pressure to eat unhealthy.
