Black and Hispanic teens are disproportionately targeted with ads for junk food.

Jan 22 2019

Black and Hispanic teens are disproportionately targeted with ads for junk food. The Rudd Center and Council on Black Health reports that spending on TV ads from the food and beverage industry dipped 4% from 2013 to 2017 but skyrocketed 50% for programming directed at young black viewers, with Hispanic viewers also seeing several more ads. Simultaneously, “The money put towards [healthy food and beverage] advertisements is less than 3 percent for the general population and less than 1 percent to blacks and Hispanics.” (NBC News)
