Junk Food Marketing to Kids - Legal Analysis

Last October, I coordinated a legal symposium with Loyola Law School in Los Angeles called Food Marketing to Children and the Law. An important goal was to help dispel many of the myths perpetuated by a defensive food industry about its predatory marketing techniques. The result was a huge success. We brought together some of the brightest and most dedicated legal thinkers in the nation. The published articles from that symposium are now available. Topics include the history of the Federal Trade Commission’s attempt to regulate in the 1970s, the failure of industry self-regulation, First Amendment analysis, and much more. You can view the presentations from last fall here or order a copy of the special issue here. For copies of individual articles, contact me at: Michele@informedeating.org.
