Jan. 16—Most children and teenagers in the U.S. go to schools that have partnerships with food and drink companies, according to a new study.
Those partnerships include exclusive contracts for beverages sold in schools and food coupons given out as rewards.
"The companies that do the most of this kind of marketing manufacture products that children should not be consuming at all or in large quantities, like sugary drinks," said Jennifer Harris.
