How can we protect our children from unhealthy food advertising?

Imagine when ‘All New Zealanders live, learn, work and grow in environments that support healthy eating and physical activity.’

Reducing children’s exposure to powerful unhealthy food and beverage marketing is key to meeting this vision, according to health ministers globally. The evidence snapshot has been prepared for Activity and Nutrition Aotearoa and the Auckland Regional Public Health Service by Professor Louise Signal, Dr Michelle Barr and Dr Moira Smith of the Health Promotion and Policy Research Unit, University of Otago, Wellington.

This new report makes compelling reading e.g:

  • What is unhealthy food marketing and how does it work?
  • What is the evidence in NZ?
  • What are the views of children and parents and caregivers?
  • What action is needed- locally and globally?
  • What has been achieved internationally?
  • What is the NZ regulatory framework for food marketing?
  • What public policies need to be established nationally, locally, organizationally and within the community in order to bring about change?
