This report contains the rationale, methods and outcomes of a rapid evidence review conducted to identify the available evidence to inform two research questions asked by the World Health Organization (WHO) Scientific Technical Advisory Committee; 1. What does the literature report on the effects of marketing of commercially available complementary food (including drink) products for infants and young children, on the feeding attitudes and behaviours of their caregivers? 2. What do recent systematic reviews of the literature report regarding the effects of marketing of: child-oriented food products, pharmaceutical products, BMS, alcohol, tobacco and tobacco related products to women especially parents, on outcomes which will usefully inform the primary research question?
