Wadsworth, Laurie A.; Berenbaum, Shawna
Canadian Home Economics Journal, v51 n1 p13-18 2001
Using textual analysis of 805 incidents in 10 television programs and surrounding commercials, foods portrayed were compared with nutrition guidelines. Foods tended to be higher in fat and lower in fiber, and food portrayals had social and psychological meanings. Adverse health effects of foods low in nutrients were not depicted.
