Young Kids’ Parents Can Make Food Ads Less Tempting

Parents concerned aboutِ the effect ofِ advertising onِ what theirِ children eat willِ beِ happy toِ learn thatِ a newِ study shows theirِ opinions canِ lessen theِ impact ofِ commercials andِ help young kids makeِ healthier food decisions.
Between cartoons, someِ children wereِ shown a commercial forِ French fries; othersِ watched a commercial forِ apple slices withِ dipping sauce.
Each child wasِ thenِ offered a coupon forِ eitherِ advertised food.
