More and more, parents are realizing the huge role that kid-targeted food and beverage marketing plays in driving the epidemic of childhood diet-related disease. Children look up to elite athletes. They are seen as role models. Knowing this, fast food restaurants, like McDonald's, sponsor athletes, from the Olympics to the NBA. It's one of the key ways to trick children into thinking fast food is healthy.


Breakfast of Champions |


Join the #FoodFri Tweetchat with @MomsRising and @stopcorpabuse on Friday, March 14, 2014, at 1 p.m., EST / 10 a.m. PST.


The breakfast of champions is not full of refined grains, sugar, salt,  and/or saturated fat. You can not get to the level of an elite athlete by eating junk food. This is what children need to hear and learn. Join us and raise your voice to stop this insidious marketing that is contributing to diet-related disease! Together, we can protect our kids' health by exposing and challenging junk food marketing.

Share your thoughts, tips and stories  as we discuss the role that athletic sponsorship plays in childhood diet-related disease and learn how YOU can use your voice to advocate  for children's health.
