United States - More soda companies are targetting the U.S. children and teenagers market more than before.
The adverts are targetting blacks and Hispanics mainly, as marketers have expanded online, according to a study released on Monday.
The report from the Yale University Rudd Center for Food Policy & Obesity also said many fruit and energy drinks, which are popular with teenagers, have as much added sugar and as many calories as regular soda.
