C5. Krabby Patties, Kelp Chips, Or Kitkats?: Exploring the Depictions of Food Featured in Children’S Television Shows  

Time spent watching TV may contribute to unhealthy eating, yet most studies only review food advertising. We examine food and beverage references within 64.5 hours of children’s television programs. Our results show prevalence of un-branded and less healthy food and beverages primarily as snacks. Ramifications for child obesity are discussed.
