Increasing disparities in unhealthy food advertising targeted to Hispanic and Black youth

In this report, we apply the same methods and definitions used in our previous report to identify food-related TV advertising targeted to Black and Hispanic consumers in 2017, and exposure to those ads by Hispanic and Black youth, including children (2-11 years) and teens (ages 12-17 years). We use Nielsen syndicated market research data to measure TV advertising spending in total, as well as spending on targeted media (Spanish-language and Black-targeted TV networks).
