More bans

Junk food ad crackdown announced

Junk food ads during TV programmes targeted at under-16s will be banned, under rules put forward by regulators. Ofcom says these foods include any that are high in fat, salt and sugar.

There will be a total ban on ads during children’s programmes and on children’s channels, as well as adult programmes watched by a large number of children.

Mr Biffo reckons that’s the end of kids’ TV as we know it.
