The FTC held a day-long forum in December 2009 called "Sizing Up Food Marketing and Childhood Obesity." The forum assembled industry representatives, federal regulators, consumer groups, scientific researchers, and legal scholars to discuss issues related to food marketing to children. Specifically, the panelists discussed current research on the impact of food advertising on children, and the food and entertainment industries' progress toward self-regulation and implementation of the recommendations in the FTC's 2008 report "Marketing Foods to Children and Adolescents: A Review of Industry Expenditures, Activities, and Self-Regulation."
