Changing young people's eating habits
Date:6/9/2010

A thesis from the University of Gothenburg, Sweden, reveals how school initiatives are succeeding in getting the message across to young people, but also points out that food advertisements are using health arguments to market unhealthy products.

Special initiative

Pupils were also taught about the nutritional value of fish and were given the opportunity to cook and find out more about fish.

The result was a statistically proven increase in pupils' fish consumption in school.

Food advertising biggest

Hillevi Prell has examined the extent and content of television food advertising. Almost 200 hours of broadcasts have been analysed from the commercial channels that are most popular among children aged 3-12 years (TV3, TV4 and Channel 5).
