"Targeted Food Marketing to Youth" is a free online self-paced training for professionals based on the need for youth to build skills in which they will wisely select and prepare healthful foods. The training was developed to help professionals who work with parents, caregivers, and after-school programs increase their knowledge of food marketing strategies, child and youth development, nutrition and physical activity, and parent and family strategies related to food choices. In addition, the training provides lesson plan resources to help professionals teach the information to parents, caregivers, and youth ages 8 - 13.
