Tell Mickey Mouse Thanks (and Disney CEO Bob Iger, Too!)
The Walt Disney Company recently announced that it will apply nutritional standards to foods and beverages advertised to children through its television, radio and online outlets. This is a welcome move, as Disney is the first major media company to announce such a comprehensive marketing policy. The food industry spends $2 billion every year marketing predominantly unhealthy food and beverages to kids. By setting such comprehensive marketing standards, Disney is helping protect our kids from these ads and setting an example for what other media companies could do. Take action and thank Disney for doing the right thing for kids' health.
