The Obesity Policy Coalition has launched a new blueprint for regulating junk food advertising to children. The blueprint sets out a plan for federal and state and territory governments to enact legislation to restrict all forms of advertising and promotion of unhealthy food and beverages to children. It specifies how legislation should operate, the types of advertising and promotion that should be restricted, and proposes definitions for key terms and phrases such as ‘unhealthy food’ and ‘directed to children’.
The blueprint has been backed by all leading Australian public health agencies, including the Australian Chronic Disease Prevention Alliance, the Australian Medical Association, and the Coalition on Food Advertising to Children.
