In partnership with Gugma PR, ImagineLaw launched a Media Fellowship and selected seven media members in the country to produce stories to help create public awareness on the ill effect on health of unhealthy foods for children being marketed and advertised in televisions, radio, newspaper and online platforms including social media.

Obesity, diabetes, urinary tract infection are just among the very common types of ailments children would incur due to accumulated intake of unhealthy foods, from frozen goods to butter, snacks and even biscuits. Contributed photo
