Junk Food Adverts And Tackling Childhood Obesity

EDM number 1498 in 2017-19, proposed by Keith Vaz on 09/07/2018.
Categorised under the topics of Children and families, Companies, Consumers, Food, Obesity and Regulation.

That this House welcomes the Advertising Standards Authority's decision to ban product advertisements from Cadbury, Chewits and Squashies targeting junk food at children online as they are considered high in fat, salt or sugar; recognises that these measures constitute vital progress towards reducing the burden of pester power on parents’ nutritional decisions; notes the importance of considering habits to inform potential changes to levels of advertisement exposure across all media platforms; commends wider implementation and consultations of the childhood obesity plan tackling the obesity epidemic in the UK with the introduction of the Soft Drinks Industry Levy on sugar reduction, daily active mile in schools and banning the sale of sweets at checkouts; and calls on the Government to provide progress updates on its calorie reduction policies and clear food labelling.

This motion has been signed by a total of 24 MPs.
