Children's Food Campaign

The Dental Health Foundation and the National Heart Alliance are calling for a ban on TV advertising of unhealthy foods to children -foods high in fat, sugar or salt, such as confectionary, salty snack foods, fizzy sugary drinks and fast food. There is a vast amount of scientific evidence linking these foods to a poor diet and obesity in young people.

The Children's Food Campaign website was launched on Tuesday, 16th June 2009 via a press release (click here to view).
