This supplement editorial was published in the Maternal & Child Nutrition Supplement: Marketing and Consumption of Commercial Foods Fed to Young Children in Low and Middle‐income Countries.

Excerpt: This 2019 Maternal & Child Nutrition supplement presents the continuation of research in Cambodia, Nepal, and Senegal, as well as a broadening of its scope in a new study site, Bandung City, Indonesia, and among a new age group: children 24–35 months of age. The nine articles presented here provide new insights into the promotion which takes place for these products in urban LMIC study sites, exploration of the nutrient content and fortification of commercial products consumed by young children, as well as new data on consumption of commercial foods by infants and young children and drivers of food choice for commercial foods by caregivers.
