  • In May 2010, the 63rd World Health Assembly unanimously endorsed
    the World Health Organization (WHO) set of recommendations on the
    marketing of foods and non-alcoholic beverages to children.1 The WHO
    Recommendations urge governments to adopt restrictions on marketing
    to promote better nutrition and contribute to the global objective of
    ending childhood obesity.

    Despite the accumulation of independent evidence that unhealthy food
    marketing affects children’s preferences, purchase requests and diets,
    progress towards implementing these recommendations has been slow.
    Food Marketing and Children’s Rights offers a legal analysis that links the
    WHO Recommendations with the Convention on the Rights of the Child
    (CRC). After describing the extent of children’s exposure to unhealthy
    food marketing, this report details which rights are impacted, and
    outlines government duties and corporate responsibilities to protect and
    respect these rights.

    This report is intended for policy makers. It aims to highlight a useful
    framework for delivering on the government obligation and business
    responsibility to protect children from unhealthy food marketing.

    In this analysis, the CRC provides the foundation for a child rightsbased
    approach to ending childhood obesity and the prevention of
    non-communicable diseases – with children identifi ed as rights holders
    and governments as the corresponding duty bearers. Within this
    framework, all policies and actions that have a potential impact on
    children should be guided by internationally accepted human rights
    principles and standards.
