The Federal Trade Commission is urging media companies to use children’s advertising to promote more healthful foods, TelevisionWeek reports. According to a report released by the FTC, about 63% of the total $1.6 billion spent by food and beverage companies on marketing to children under 17 in 2006 was spent on fast food restaurants, carbonated drinks and breakfast foods. The report warned that if media companies do not self-regulate, government regulations might be imposed, the Wall Street Journal says.
