A new survey says that more than half of East Midlands parents with children under 16 say they have been pestered by their children to buy junk food advertised on TV.

The study by the British Heart Foundation polled 2,000 parents in the region and found that 37% reported being badgered by their children at least once a week.

Three in ten parents told researchers that junk food adverts make it difficult to encourage their children to eat healthily.

The study was carried out ahead of Heart Month this February.

Now, the BHF is campaigning for the government to ban junk food advertising on TV before the 9pm watershed.

"Regulations for TV and online advertising in the UK are weak. Loopholes in the system mean that every day millions of children are exposed to sophisticated marketing techniques specifically designed to lure them into unhealthy eating habits.

“This evidence shows that junk food ads are having a detrimental impact on children’s behaviour and are hindering parents’ efforts to get their children to eat healthily."
