|MELBOURNE Jeff Petry Canadiens Jersey , Aug. 1 (Xinhua) -- Toys can have a significant influence on the eating choices of children, an Australian study has found.
The study, published by the Cancer Council of Victoria (CCV) on Tuesday Phillip Danault Canadiens Jersey , found that children aged between five and nine years old were more likely to choose a healthy food option if the meal came with a free toy, such as a character from a popular movie.
More than 1,000 children were offered a number of healthy and unhealthy meal choices after watching a trailer for a film.
Overall Karl Alzner Canadiens Jersey , children were more likely to choose the unhealthy option, but the interest in the healthy meals increased significantly when a toy was offered.
Jane Martin, a member of the Obesity Policy Coalition Authentic Max Pacioretty Jersey , said that the study proved that the marketing around unhealthy food choices aimed at children should be restricted.
"It's very, very hard to protect your kids from this kind of promotion; it's virtually impossible," Martin told Australian media on Tuesday.
"With one in four Australian kids currently overweight or obese Authentic Andrew Shawv Jersey , we should be supporting parents to make healthier choices, and not setting them up to battle with their kids over unhealthy food.
"I think that most children would not be requesting to go into a fast food franchise without the toy and the collectables."
She went as far as to say that toys and giveaways should only be allowed to be paired with healthy options.
"It shows that these kinds of promotions can be used in a way to harness children's interest and desires, and use it to put healthy food in front of them Authentic Artturi Lehkonen Jersey ," Martin said.
Helen Dixon, lead researcher from the CCV, agreed with Martin Authentic Victor Mete Jersey , saying companies should have to fulfill nutrition criteria before giveaway promotions could be run.
"We know from analysis of advertising content on TV and other media that unhealthy food products like sweets, breakfast cereals, sugary junk food Authentic Paul Byron Jersey , snack food, fast food is very much overrepresented," Dixon said.
"We know marketing works Authentic Jeff Petry Jersey , companies wouldn't invest so much in it if they didn't think it worked."

BEIJING， July 29 (Xinhua) -- China's crude oil imports hit a record high in the first half of 2016 despite an economic slowdown， and analysts largely attributed the surge to low prices， not strategic maneuvering.
The country imported 186.5 million tonnes of crude oil in the first half of the year， 23.15 million tonnes more than the same period last year， although imports in June slowed to 30.62 million tonnes from a peak of 32 million tonnes per month in March， April and May.
"Enterprises increased crude oil imports in the first half year as they believe global oil prices have bottomed out，" said Zhu Fang， deputy head of the information and market department of China Petroleum and Chemical Industry Federation.
The oil import jump was also strengthened by policy decisions， as China's top economic planner set a floor for domestic retail fuel prices in January， said Zhu.
At the beginning of the year， the National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC) declared that domestic retail prices should not be cut if global oil prices fell below 40 U.S. dollars a barrel.
The NDRC said the move was to buffer the negative effects of volatile fluctuations in international oil prices. Previously， it set a ceiling that domestic retail fuel prices would not rise if international oil prices rose above 130 U.S. dollars per barrel.
China also approved more private firms to work in the oil refinery business， which also increased oil imports， said an industry insider at PetroChina， China's biggest oil producer.
So far， 15 enterprises have gained approval on crude oil imports， with their aggregate quota exceeding 60 million tonnes， according to the NDRC.
NDRC official Zhao Gongzheng echoed Zhu's opinion， saying that it was the market， including low oil prices， that was causing the growth of crude oil imports.
Zhao dismissed foreign media claims that China was taking advantage of low oil prices to build up its strategic petroleum reserves (SPR).
"China's SPR has limited influence， so far， on global oil prices in light of its reserve ability and capacity，" said Zhao， adding that it is a long process for China to expand its SPR.
By the end of 2015， China had eight national SPR bases， with a total storage capacity of 180 million barrels of crude， and 26 commercial oil reserve bases with a total storage capacity of 315 million barrels. Additionally， China is building another six commercial bases with a total storage capacity of 57.54 million barrels， according to the CNPC (China National Petroleum Corporation) Economics & Technology Research Institute.
China consumed a daily average of 11.97 million barrels of crude oil in 2015， according to an estimate by BP Energy Outlook. That means China's crude oil reserves， even counting the unfinished commercial bases， would only last for 46 days of consumption， well below the standard stockpiling to cover 90 to 120 days in Western countries such as the United States and Japan， Zhao said.
China's crude oil output dropped 4.8 percent year on year . Cheap Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys From China Wholesale Jerseys From China Wholesale Hoddies Cheap Hats Cheap T-shirts China Cheap College Hoddies Cheap Soccer Hoddies Cheap Adidas NHL Hoddies
