1. Hypothesis: In the experiment children who see advertising for food increase the amount they want. Also it makes them hungry for snacks in particular. 2. Participants: In this experiment there were 110 children that ranged from seven to eleven years old, and there were 56 girls and 62 boys. In-group 1a and group 1b children of different weights were evenly distributed. In-group 1a they used primarily white children, and 1b was mainly Hispanic or other ethnic children. 3. Results: Children who were exposed to food advertisement while watching television eat an average of 8.8g more then the children who did not. The race had nothing to do with the results but it indeed proved that children who see advertising for food had much more of an appetite for what they saw.
