Part of the What You Need to Know to Promote Healthy Eating in Your State! webinar series. Fast-food restaurants spent $520 million marketing fast-food to children—including $360 million on kids’ meal toys. Restaurants are making some improvements to children’s meals, but much more needs to be done. This webinar will review the nutritional quality of restaurant children’s meals; the scope of fast-food marketing to children; approaches states and localities can use to address the nutritional quality and marketing of restaurant children’s meals; and the effectiveness of these policies to date.
