A comprehensive ban on the targeted advertising of harmful products to children would reinforce healthy lifestyle choices and ensure young people's wellbeing for the future.
The Greens will:
- Set enforceable, national standard times for child-friendly TV ads that would ban junk food, gambling and alcohol ads on commercial TV between 6am and 9am, and 4pm and 9pm on weekdays; and between 6am and 9pm on weekends and during school holidays.
- Ban subscription television channels dedicated to children's programming from showing junk food, gambling and alcohol advertisements.
- Prevent companies from using emails and smartphones to target underage customers to send material promoting unhealthy foods, gambling and alcohol products.
