Join us in asking Nickelodeon to back parents up and stop marketing junk food to children!
We're on a roll when it comes to building healthy communities for our kids. In recent years, major restaurant chains like Burger King, Wendy’s, iHop and Applebee’s have taken soda out of kid’s meals as the default option. And the food and beverage industry’s own self-regulatory body, the Corporate Food and Beverage Advertising Initiative (CFBAI), has recommended measures that protect kids from aggressive marketing. This is all great news for families. Let's keep the momentum going! Join us in asking Nickelodeon to back parents up and stop marketing junk food to children!
Tell companies to adopt new expert recommendations limiting junk food marketing to kids.
Join us to tell companies it's time to follow expert recommendations around responsible food marketing to kids. Companies spend almost $2 billion per year marketing food and drinks to kids, and the majority of that marketing is for junk food. But companies can also be a part of what makes a healthy community, playing a role alongside schools, families, and public spaces. And we know they listen to parents. In fact, women make three-quarters of purchasing decisions so when we speak out, companies listen. Can you tell companies to do more to protect the health of our kids? It just takes a minute.
Ask Rovio to stop using Angry Birds to market junk food to kids!
In November, nearly 1,400 CSPI supporters joined us in emailing Rovio Entertainment, the company that created Angry Birds, to ask them to stop licensing their characters to market junk food, including fruit gummies (which are basically candy) and other candy, to kids. Unfortunately, the company is still at it. We need your help to get Rovio to stop using Angry Birds to push junk food on kids.
Please send a message to Rovio today to ask them to stop using Angry Birds to market junk food to kids. Also, please share this note with friends and family, who you think might help. Thank you in advance!
