University of Liverpool, researches report that almost six in ten food and drink advertisements shown during family programs in the UK popular with children are for 'junk food' such as fast food, takeaways and confectionery.

The same ads would be banned from children's TV under UK regulations which prohibit the advertising of food and drinks high in fat, salt or sugar during programs aimed at children. However, loopholes in these regulations mean that the most popular programs with children, even those marketed as 'family programs', do not have the same advertising safeguards as programs watched only by children. 

Poll Question:
Do you agree with the suggestion that ads for food and drinks high in fat, salt or sugar should be restricted on TV until after 9 pm?
