For the past 50 years, the fast food industries can mold marketing messages in multiple media that impacted how consumers perceived fast food. Children are often the target in the messaging and creation of fast-food brand identities. They are also more vulnerable to the marketing messages being transmitted.

In her chapter “Starting Early” in the book Food Politics, Marion Nestle, a nutritionist, and professor of food studies, insists that children are introduced to junk foods early in life due to obsessive commercials advertisements, trying to persuade them mainly.

In the article,¨ The battle against fast food begins in the home¨, Daniel Weintraub claims that parents are who to fault for their child(ren)’s obesity problems. Weintraub supports his argument by explaining the data and research to show that most studies focused on,¨the increasing consumption of fast food and soft drinks, larger portion sizes in restaurants, the availability of junk food on campus, advertising junk food to children and their families, and the lack of consistent physical education programs in the school.¨ The author’s purpose is to inform and raise awareness that their parent’s are who to fault so that their child(ren) could stop blaming everyone else, for something that happens at home. I agree with Weintraub's are you meant for many reasons. there might be some kids launching lawsuits against the fast food industry, for making them fat. The problem here is that the food industry has no fault.
In the middle east and Malaysia, there are huge marketing promotions of food high in fat and many parents are having a tough responsibility in which they are confined between picking a good selection of food products to maintain their health and the health of their children or to succumb to their desires and their children’s requests to buy unhealthy advertised food products.
