Health Canada proposing restrictions on junk food ads.

Published on : August 27, 2017 3:15

Health Canada is suggesting restrictions on TV ads peddling junk food, targeting kids every day of the week. The rules would limit these types of ads online as well — perhaps the biggest challenge — and in places where children spend time, like schools and amusement parks.

However the agency has not set a deadline for implementing them.

Advertisers say the link between unhealthy food ads and obesity isn’t clear, while health advocates say there’s a direct relationship.
