Child-Oriented Marketing on Cereal Packaging: Associations With Sugar Content and Manufacturer Pledge

We will present on the background/rationale, methods, and findings from our March 2020 JNEB article entitled: Child-Oriented Promotional Features on Cereal Packaging: Associations with Sugar Content and Manufacturer Pledge." This content analysis of cereal box packaging found that products with the highest rates of sugar featured the greatest number of child-oriented marketing features. This was despite industry regulatory guidelines aimed a promoting "healthier" products to children.
