Marketing Food to Children: Anna Lappe at TEDx Manhattan 2013
Author and activist Anna Lappe takes on the billion-dollar business of marketing junk food, soda, and fast food to children and teens. With diet-related related illnesses alarmingly on the rise, pervasive marketing of junk food to kids is downright dangerous. The food industry says it's up to parents to raise healthy kids. A mother herself, Lappe agrees; that's why she says leave parenting to her--and the millions of other moms and dads trying to raise healthy kids. Learn about the dubious marketing tactics of the junk food giants and the ways you can fight back to promote kids' health.
