Fast Food Commercials Get Children To Eat More Junk Food

A new report finds that children link eating junk foods to having a "better time." What's more, watching TV advertisements about unhealthy foods make children feel hungry.

The new study also finds that young children enjoy watching TV ads that are engaging and funny. Plus, the kids are able to recall the ads' tunes.

"It's clear the restrictions already in place during children's TV shows aren't enough. Children are watching junk food ads during family programs where these restrictions don't apply" said Cancer Research UK director of prevention, Alison Cox.
