Children's diet poor16th January 2008
Research by the British Heart Foundation claims that the diet of children in the UK is now so poor, that more than two-thirds do not regard fast food as a treat.
Following the BHF survey of 500 children, which showed that many do not regard sweets and crisps as "anything special", the organisation now wants junk food advertisements banned before the 9pm watershed. It also wants the foods and drinks industry to stop putting messages aimed at children on their packaging.
