September 6th, 2022


  • States and local education agencies should support and implement the provision that all food and beverage advertisements on school campuses meet Smart Snacks nutrition guidelines during the school day–expand to include all forms of marketing (brand).
  • The Federal Trade Commission should resume issuing reports examining food marketing to children.
  • Restaurants should take soda and other sugary drinks off of kids menus and menu boards.
