Policy brief: Food advertising voluntary codes [ 83% ]

The food industry’s voluntary advertising codes fail to protect children from exposure to unhealthy food advertising. The codes do not apply to the highest rating children’s programs, do not cover all forms of promotion, do not apply to all food advertisers, and contain unclear and inadequate nutrition criteria. Compliance with the codes is not monitored, there are no sanctions for breaches, and provisions of the codes are narrowly interpreted by the Advertising Standards Board. Legislation is needed to protect children from the detrimental effects of unhealthy food advertising.

Policy brief: Food advertising to children [ 77% ]

There is substantial evidence that food and beverage advertising influences the types of foods children desire, demand and consume. Advertising of unhealthy food to children also undermines healthy eating messages from parents, schools and government, affects children’s ability to establish healthy eating patterns, and is likely to contribute to overweight and obesity in children.

The Obesity Policy Coalition recommends that legislation should be introduced (by federal and/or state governments) to prohibit television advertising of unhealthy food on television at times when a significant number of children are likely to be watching - on weekdays from 6–9am and 4–9 pm, and on weekends and school holidays from 6am–12pm and 4–9pm.

Legislation should also prohibit all other forms of promotion of unhealthy food to children, including via print, radio, internet, cinema, outdoor media, direct marketing (email, SMS or direct mail), product packaging, or point of sale promotions.
