Abstract While watching or playing with media, children are often confronted with\n food appearances. These food portrayals might be a potential factor that\n affects a child\'s dietary behaviors. We aimed to comprehensively expound\n the effects of these types of food appearances on dietary outcomes of\n children. Our objectives were to synthetize the evidence of the\n experiments that study the effects of foods embedded in children\'s\n entertainment media throughout a systematic review, to conduct two\n meta-analyses (food choice and intake) in order to quantify the effects,\n and to examine to what extent the effects of foods embedded in\n entertainment media varies across different moderating variables. We\n conducted a systematic search of five databases for studies published up\n to July 2018 regarding terms related to children and foods embedded in\n entertainment media. We identified 26 eligible articles, of which 13 (20\n effect sizes) and 7 (13 effect sizes) were considered for a\n meta-analysis on food choice and intake, respectively. Most of the\n studies were assessed as having a middle risk of bias. Overall, food\n being embedded in entertainment media is a strategy that affects the\n eating behaviors of children. As most of the embedded foods in the\n included studies had low nutritional values, urgent measures are needed\n to address the problem of childhood obesity.
