Disney to quit taking ads for junk food aimed at kids

By 2015, all food and beverage products that are advertised, promoted or sponsored on the Disney Channel, Disney XD, Disney Junior, Radio Disney, Disney.com and Saturday morning programming for kids on ABC-owned stations (Disney owns ABC) will have to meet the company’s nutrition criteria for limiting calories and reducing saturated fat, sodium and sugar.

Many foods, such as prepackaged lunches, fruit drinks, candy and snack cakes, won’t make the cut.

The nutrition criteria were created by experts to reflect the government’s dietary guidelines.
