Food is the most common product in television ads that target American children and teens, and many of those commercials are for junk food, according to a Kaiser Family Foundation study released Thursday.
No fruit or veg ads
The study found that 34 percent of television commercials aimed at children and teens were for candy and snacks, 28 percent were for cereal, 10 percent for fast foods, and 4 percent for dairy products. There were no commercials for fruit or vegetables, the Post reported.
After food, the most common products in television ads aimed at children and teens were music, video games and movies.
