Parents Already Have a Lot to Worry About

Is hidden digital advertising and marketing to your kids promoting fatty, sugary and salty foods?

Parents have a lot to worry about. Cyber bullying, online predators, and violence, are all top of mind for most parents, but the World Health Organization wants to add yet another major issue to parents' lists: hidden digital advertising and marketing promoting fatty, sugary and salty foods. 

Reuters reports that children in Europe are bombarded by these messages that are damaging their health and adding to the region's obesity problem. The W.H.O. researchers are calling for policy makers to do more to protect children from junk food advertising messages on networking sites, games - known as "advergames" - and other social media.
