This study examines food and beverages in a longitudinal sample of children's movies. The authors identified and coded food and beverage appearances in children's movies, and differentiated between healthy, mixed, and unhealthy products. Out of the references, they found 41.4% presented clearly unhealthy products and that "unhealthy products were more likely to be presented centrally, to be evaluated positively, to be interacted with, and to be consumed compared with healthy or mixed foods and beverages."
