SHOULD TV FOOD COMMERCIALS TARGETTING CHILDREN BE BANNED?
Children in developed countries are facing serious health hazards, such as obesity, that are
thought to be directly linked to their pattern on consumption influenced by junk food
commercials during childrens TV programs.
New Zealand is considering a ban following a finding that 65 percent of all the commercials
during childrens TV programs promote food that is high in fat, sugar, and salt content such as
sweets, snacks, drinks and ice cream. Child diabetes and dental problems have been attributed
to such foodstuffs.
Most European Union members have also launched strict regulations against childrens TV
commercials, but only Sweden and Norway have seriously attempted to a complete ban.
Responses to the policy have varied; some have protested against it, while others have
adjusted their approaches to marketing their snack products.
A study of Ofcom, a media regulating body in the UK, found that commercials do not have a
direct impact on childrens eating habits. A commercials ban would therefore not mean much in
reducing the childhood obesity rate.
What has been found to have direct impact is the change in the eating habits of the community,
whose access to instant meals is increasing all the time. More people have less time to prepare
food, so variations of instant food are increasingly becoming a choice, despite the fact that most
of these meals are fatty, calorie-laden and high in slat and sugar content.
Another argument against the ban is that child obesity has more to do with a sedentary lifestyle
than with TV commercials. Todays children spend more hours before the television or computer
than on active play, leading to the calories piling on and turning into fat.
In short, proponents of the ban base are that child obesity their argument on the health risks
facing obese children who will likely grow up obese and prone to disease. They believe that
banning the commercials, children will be less likely to consume junk food.
