Ayak James Magok's insight:

Obesity is a major contributor to the global burden of chronic disease and disability. Around the world, levels of childhood obesity have been rising for a number of reasons including a shift in diet towards increased intake of foods that are high in fat and sugars and a reduction in the amount of time spent on physical activity.

Ayak James Magok's insight:

A new code designed to protect children from online junk food advertising is a "sham", according to public health groups which say nine out of 10 complaints have been dismissed, and products such as Coco Pops and Paddle Pops are deemed "healthy" under the system.

Research reveals vegetables taste better to preschoolers if served

restrictions. -
Ayak James Magok's insight:

Junk-food advertising's influence on young children has been confirmed by research revealing vegetables taste better to preschoolers if served in McDonald's wrappers.

In a study prompting renewed calls for restrictions on fast-food marketing, four out of five children preferred hamburgers, chicken nuggets, fries, milk and even baby carrots served in McDonald's packaging, over identical food in plain wrappers.

Childhood obesity experts said the results of 300 individual tasting comparisons, with 63 children aged three to five, were alarming.

Should junk food ads be banned?

Should junk food ads be banned? | Advertising and Junk Food investigation | Scoop.it

Australia averaged twelve ads per hour with a total of 231 ads for the twenty hours studied. At the time, health ministers said we needed more proof that food advertising affected children’s food choices and could be implicated in contributing to obesity.

Since 1996 childhood obesity rates have escalated but the Federal Health Minister, Tony Abbot, is still resisting tough action on advertising food to children. Following the health ministers’ April meeting, the Sydney Morning Herald (8 April) reported Mr Abbott’s statement, ‘we agree to disagree on TV advertising because there is not enough evidence and more research is needed to determine its effectiveness.’

Policy brief: Food advertising regulation in Australia - Obesity Policy Coalition

Policy brief: Food advertising regulation in Australia - Obesity Policy Coalition | Advertising and Junk Food investigation | Scoop.it
This document describes existing regulations governing food advertising in Australia, and discusses the problems with the regulations.
Ayak James Magok's insight:

Food advertising in Australia is regulated under a complex mix of statutory regulations and co- and self- regulatory codes. These regulations and codes are inadequate to protect children from unhealthy food advertising; they do not restrict the volume of unhealthy food advertising that children are exposed to, nor do they adequately restrict the marketing techniques most commonly used to target children. There are also significant deficiencies in the administration and enforcement of the self-regulatory codes. Comprehensive legislation restricting unhealthy food advertising to children is urgently required.

QUT nutrition researcher Professor Lynne Daniels said regularly giving babies even small amounts of sweet, fatty or salty foods could contribute to them learning to prefer these over nutritionally valuable foods.

Fast-Food Ads Aimed at Kids Focus on Toys, Not Food

Fast-Food Ads Aimed at Kids Focus on Toys, Not Food | Advertising and Junk Food investigation | Scoop.it

THURSDAY, Aug. 29 (HealthDay News) -- Unlike fast-food advertisements geared toward adults, which feature burgers and fries, those targeting children focus more on free toys, movie tie-ins and other giveaways, according to a new study.

In light of their findings, researchers called for more regulation of fast-food marketing to children.

"Given health concerns about obesity and its relation to fast-food consumption, enhanced oversight of fast-food marketing to children at the local, state and federal level is needed to align advertising to children with health promotion efforts and existing principles of honest and fair marketing to children," the study's authors wrote.
