Which TV Shows Advertise Junk Food The Most?

The effect of junk food advertising on kids’ eating habits is a topic of constant controversy. If you’re a parent who wants to minimise the number of those ads your kids see, the Cancer Council’s new Fat Free TV Guide outlines which shows feature the most fast-food promotion.

You can search for a show to see how it ranks, or check a list of “fatty shows” for the worst offenders. Worst case amongst regular broadcasts? The AFL, followed by The X Factor and Dancing With The Stars.

Before the comments denigrate into a holy war, obviously parents have to do more than just stop their kids watching fast food advertising if they want to inculcate healthy dietary habits. But as part of that battle, this could be a useful resource.
