Examining Chile’s Unique Food Marketing Policy: TV Advertising and Dietary Intake in Preschool Children, a Pre- and Post- Policy Study

The Chilean government implemented the first phase of a comprehensive marketing policy in 2016, restricting child-directed marketing of products high in energy, total sugars, sodium or saturated fat (hereafter “high-in”). This study examined the role that high-in TV food advertising had in the effect of the policy on consumption of high-in products between 2016 and 2017.
