Children nagging for food

A paper here from the John Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health finds that children adopt nagging tactics to get parents to buy food advertised on TV. Parents, the paper finds, have various tactics for coping. The report's conclusion is that TV food advertising may need to be controlled. Astounding.

Nice work if you have the stomach for it I suppose.

Try tapping into Google - 'john hopkins low quality' - the answers are revealing although like the research example given, they may be rubbish. All that glisters is not gold.
