Nations leading the fight against unhealthy ads
In 1980, Quebec introduced an advertising ban on toys and fast food aimed at children under 13.
The government restricts all advertising directed specifically at children and there are also hefty taxes (83 per cent) on sugary drinks and confectionery. Chilean law restricts advertising targeting those under 14 with foods high in calories, fat, sugar and/or sodium.
A ban on ads for food high in fat, sugar and/or salt that target children became law in 2006. A tax on drinks with more than 5g sugar per 100ml was enacted this year.
