The type of lifestyle that parents of Latino children lead matters greatly, because parental food choices will influence a child’s eating habits. Recently, researchers studied two densely populated areas in Los Angeles and New Orleans and found that there was a positive correlation between the number of food advertisements and body mass index (BMI) for individuals between the ages of 18-98. In areas where approximately 5,000 residents lived and where 30 percent of the ads were for food, the study found that an additional 100-150 individuals were obese.
