The CFDCP reports that 1 in 5 children under the age of 19 are overweight.  Earlier this week, the FTC released a report on the advertising expenditures aimed toward children of 44 food companies.  This feature includes an interview with Dr. Susan Linn, Director of Commercial Free Childhood, as well as comments from Dr. Tom Benton, a pediatrician and member of the Christian Medical and Dental Association.
