A Different Playing Field. How is Advertising to Kids Different?

In 1974, NAD’s sister program, the Children’s Advertising Review Unit, or CARU, was established to monitor an area of national advertising not covered by NAD: the unique children’s marketplace. CARU’s role? To protect children under 13 from advertising that is misleading, inappropriate, or inconsistent with laws and guidelines.

In this episode of Ad Watchers, hosts Dan and Annie talk with Rukiya Bonner, the new Director of CARU, to discuss the nuances of monitoring this evolving marketplace.
