This project requires students to develop a targeted Food Advertisement. Before reading the instructions, please note that this project does not require a review of market research or marketing background, and it is not evaluated based on the quality of marketing information it presents. The basis for grading is essentially the student’s ability to appropriately align a food with nutrients, biological functions, and consumer nutrition needs while gaining insight into nutrition claims and marketing.
Select one food item that will star in the advertisement. It can be a singular, whole food, like a banana, a recipe or a dish, like potato salad, an ingredient, like cinnamon, or even a broad product category, such as ‘Ready-to-Eat Cereal’, or ‘Instant Oatmeal’. Keep in mind that the advertisement must be original, so do not use existing packaged products, like ‘Naked Juice’ or ‘Cliff Bar’, or grocer’s brands, like ‘Trader Joe’s Milk’, since their marketing will be easy to unintentionally copy.
The written portion is a 300–600-word summary that describes the advertisement as specified in section headings A. B. C. The written portion must be submitted to Canvas Assignments as a “Text Entry” and works cited are not needed.
A. Describe the food in 200 words max. Include information like where it originates, how it’s customarily eaten or used, where it’s purchased, what food group it fits, and for multi-ingredient products, what the main ingredients are. The most important part of section A is to identify 2-4 nutrients or phytochemicals that are featured in the food, including the amounts provided per standard-size serving. Be sure that the amounts per serving qualify to use the FDA nutrition claims described in section C and satisfy the audiences’ nutrition needs described in section B.
B. Describe the audience in 200 words max. Include demographic information about who buys the food, what they value about it, which styles and cultures they might identify with, and most importantly, what their nutrition needs are.
C. Describe the advertisement in 200 words max. Include information about the delivery format, like whether it’s a video, a graphic, a song, etc., and the styling used to attract the target audience, such as fonts, colors, and artistic themes. The most important part of section C is to identify at least two FDA-approved nutrition claims that will be featured in the ad. The claims can be Nutrient Content Claims, Health Claims, or Structure-Function Claims, but they must be relevant to the target audience, legitimate, and properly worded.

to differentiate between Health and Structure-Function claims and learn the criteria and language for their use.
The advertisement mirrors the written summary. It can be any medium or format-digital or print, hand-drawn, colored, or black and white, realistic, or abstract, still or motion framed, but it must be titled by the featured food and attached to the Written Portion as a jpeg, .mp4., or .pdf. In case it wasn’t clear, the ad must display the featured food and at least two nutrition claims. The design should appeal to the target audience and it should be attentive to visual presentation details, such as a sharp focus and a clean and consistent layout.
A. Bananas are a nutritious and widely available fruit. They are easy and portable and often marketed as a healthy snack. Bananas can be eaten raw, fresh out of the peel, and they can be used in recipes to texturize and sweeten popular baked foods, smoothies, sauces, and puddings. Bananas are high in potassium and fiber, and low in calories and sodium; one medium (118 grams) banana has 100 calories, 3 grams of fiber, 450 mg of potassium, and only 1 mg of sodium.
B. Elderly adults are the target audience. They purchase bananas because they are soft and easy to swallow, affordable, and easy to access. This audience will likely identify most with historic or nostalgic themes and with child and middle-aged subjects or models to represent generations and families. Larger and more stand-out fonts will be used, and color choices will provide contrast and easy-to-see statements. Sodium and potassium-related nutrition claims will appeal to elderly adults since they are advised by health professionals to by acquiring adequate daily potassium and to limit daily sodium intake to offset age-related declines in sodium homeostasis and subsequent cardiovascular risk.
C. The advertisement is a graphic display of a cowboy sitting atop a horse in an old west/saloon-lined street with a banana on his hip and hand to it like a pistol. The entire ad is sepia-colored except for a bright yellow banana and font, which read along the top, “Keep quick on the draw”. The nutrient content and health/structure-function claim fittest for an ad targeting an elderly audience are “excellent potassium source”, “sodium-free”, and “Diets containing foods that are a good source of potassium and that are low in sodium may reduce the risk of high blood pressure and stroke.” The levels that qualify for these claims are less than 5 mg for sodium and at least 10 percent Daily Value for Potassium.

Frequently asked questions

How soon can I get my paper done?

It depends with your deadline. If you need your paper completed in 3 hours, we will deliver it in that time. All you need to do is indicate your deadline in our custom order page here. Alternatively, if you are sending us your instructions via email, please be sure to indicate your deadline.

Will it be completely original? I don't want to be caught in a case of Academic Integrity Violation.

We are as paranoid as you are. Maybe even more! And we understand that the greatest sin you can commit in your academic journey is plagiarizing your academic work. To that end, we have made sure that we check and double-check our papers using high quality plagiarism detection tools such as SafeAssign and Turnitin before submitting the paper to you.

Who is my writer? Is he/she a native English Speaker?

All our writers are native English Speakers. That is not to say that ESL writers are not good, we just prefer hiring native writers because we want the very best people working on your paper. This might mean paying a little bit more for your paper as opposed to when you pay a foreign company whose writers are non-native English Speakers.

What if I need revisions? Will your charge additional for this?

Of course not! If you do happen to require a revision on your paper, our team will handle it for you free of charge. Matter of fact, we won’t rest till you are happy with your paper. So, ask for as many revisions as you need, it’s completely FREE!

Will you give me my money back if I don't like my paper?

We have very few instances where we delivered a paper that a client didn’t fall in love with. But if it so happens that you don’t like your paper for any reason whatsoever, we’ll refund your money back no questions asked.

I have more assignments after this, can you help me with those too?

Of course! And what’s even better is that we can reserve a writer permanently to work on your entire class. This comes in handy for projects which build up on each other and where you need just one writer, one writing style.

I got my order information wrong, can I change that?

Yes you can. Just reach out to our support team via email ( or live chat here and they’ll help you change the instructions.

Can I place an order via email instead of going through the order page?

Yes you can. Email Anna at, she’s in charge of our sales team. Alternatively, you can talk to our Live Chat team here and request to speak to Anna.
