Canada Should Restrict Marketing to Kids

On April 10, First Call wrote to the Prime Minister and Minister Duclos urging them to restrict the marketing of unhealthy food and beverages to children and youth.

Along with the Heart and Stroke Foundation and the Childhood Obesity Foundation, First Call has
followed the research for many years on the harm done to children and youth by marketing highly
processed, unhealthy foods to them. We know children are easily influenced to make unhealthy food
and beverage choices by marketing practices.

We ask that policy-maker take immediate action on restricting the marketing of food high in sodium, sugars and saturated fat to kids.
