Media Literacy & Food Marketing Fact Sheets
Today’s packaged food aisles are a flurry of information.
In order to help families make critical packaged food decisions,
researchers at the University of Calgary have produced four
“Fact Sheets” based on focus groups and surveys with over
600 children. Each Fact Sheet provides information about the
supporting research, "things to thing about," and "things to try
at home." View and share these resources below:
- Images and spokescharacters on food packaging
- Food classification and food marketing
- Colour use in food packaging
- Brand names, taglines and health symbols on food packaging
- Why Media Literacy?
