How Fast-Food Marketing Gets You to Buy Junk (and How to Fight Back)
By Andrea Curtis. Illustrated by Peggy Collins. Identifying the many ways that children are exposed to unhealthy foods—from product placement in the media and celebrity endorsements to eye-level candy at the grocery store checkout—this accessible book teaches children how to resist and take charge of their own health. Accented by colorful photographs and illustrations, the research-based text shares insightful information about advertising and media literacy, and encourages young people to think critically about the overt and subtle ads they see every day.
