Sustained impact of energy-dense TV and online food advertising on children’s dietary intake: A within-subject, randomised, crossover, counter-balanced trial

This research investigated the link between exposure to food advertising and children’s energy intake and body weight in 160 New South Wales children, aged from seven to 12 years. Children were randomly assigned to either a multiple-, or single- media condition and exposed to food and non-food advertising in an online game and/or a television cartoon and their food intake during a camp was monitored.
