Harnessing the power of big data in the retail marketplace for childhood obesity prevention
Food and beverage industry marketers are increasingly using online data to target their products with chilling precision to specific demographics, in specific locations, and at specific times.
BMSG is working with the Center for Digital Democracy to assess how food and beverage marketers are deploying their digital tactics in retail environments. During this project, we will identify pathways for addressing harmful digital marketing; explore how digital marketing can be used to help foster healthy eating; and make relevant research available in an online searchable database at digitalads.org. Throughout the process, we will engage a variety of stakeholders, particularly those from communities hardest hit by diabetes and other nutrition-related diseases.
