UK viewers against junk food ads on children's TV

MUMBAI: 76 per cent of UK respondents to a BBC News survey said that they would support government action in banning junk food advertising on children's television to discourage obesity.



The BBC's Healthy Britain poll had questioned more than 1,000 adults on a number of diet related issues, including food taxation, exercise and free fruit for school children.



The banning of junk food ads was supported across all age groups, with 81 per cent of 65+ year olds and 60 per cent of 18 to 24 year olds supportive of the idea.



The poll was conducted for the BBC by ICM, who carried out a survey by phone of 1,010 adults across England, Scotland and Wales between 20 and 22 of August.
