Junk food ban - Sense 1 Nanny State 0

I'm working shifts at the moment so time is a bit limited for blogging. However I was pleased to read this report on the failed attempt to ban junk food adverts. I've always believed that there aren't any "Bad" foods, it's how much and how often you eat certain foods that can cause problems. Fat kids don't eat loads of junk food because they want to, it's because their parents can't be arsed to cook. If the credit crunch does come, we may see a reverse in obesity when parents can't afford to shove fatty take-aways down their kids throats. Until then, all the government should be doing is giving advice, nothing more nothing less.
