Food Companies Remain Committed to Advertising Healthier Foods to Children
Date:12/12/2016

The nation’s leading food and beverage companies and quick-serve restaurants remain committed to advertising to children only foods that meet the nutrition standards of the Children’s Food and Beverage Advertising Initiative. CFBAI’s 18 participants, which represent the majority of food advertising on children’s television programming, demonstrated very high compliance in 2015. According to CFBAI’s REPORT ON COMPLIANCE AND PROGRESS DURING 2015, issued today, the companies’ commitments are making a positive impact on the children’s food advertising landscape.

“In 2015, CFBAI monitored thousands of ads on children’s media, and overall compliance was excellent,” said Maureen Enright, director of CFBAI and vice president of the Council of Better Business Bureaus, which administers the program. “On child-directed TV networks, in print, radio, digital, and online, our participants advertise only foods that meet CFBAI’s rigorous nutrition criteria or do not advertise at all.”

The Report summarizes CFBAI’s assessment of the participants’ compliance, including results from its comprehensive independent monitoring, and CFBAI’s nutritional analysis of foods advertised in a “snapshot” of Nickelodeon programming. “The participants have made measurable progress in improving the nutritional quality of the foods they advertise to children,” notes Enright. “Most participant ads in our sample feature foods that contain at least a half-serving of fruits, vegetables, whole grains or dairy.”

Since it was created in 2006, CFBAI has grown from 10 to 18 companies, expanded the scope of its media coverage, adopted uniform nutrition criteria, and this year launched a new program, the Children’s Confection Advertising Initiative, in partnership with the National Confectioners Association. As it celebrates its 10th anniversary, the program is looking ahead to a second decade of success and ongoing progress.

“CFBAI is proud of the participants’ accomplishments during the first ten years,” said Enright, “and we look forward to continuing to play an active role in the fight against childhood obesity.”
