Beverage companies still target kids with marketing for unhealthy, sugary drinks

Yale Science News - Wed, 11/19/2014 - 12:05am

The report, Sugary Drink FACTS 2014, highlights some progress regarding beverage marketing to young people, but also shows that companies still have a long way to go to improve their marketing practices and the nutritional quality of their products to support young people’s health.
