Our kids can't escape advertising - What should be done?

The team Reporter from Northern News

Our children are being exposed to an average of 46 ads for unhealthy products every day (27 junk food, 12 alcohol, and seven gambling).

These things are the leading causes of cancer, obesity, diabetes, mental illness and many social harms.

Should our Government be doing more to protect our children from this advertising? What should be done?

Rural rental required

Christine from Hikurangi Coastal

Due to a relationship breakdown I am seeking a new home. The situation is far from ideal but I am hoping to start fresh and get back on my own feet. I am not able to buy a new home yet, but this is a possibility again in the near future.

I currently own my home in Marua Hikurangi. I am a solo mom with two young kids under 5 years old. I do have some animals. My hobby is breeding and hand raising parrots which you can see here on Facebook: Christine's Aviaries

I know I am asking a lot but I can only hope for something suitable to pop up for my family and animals until we are back on our feet. Please if you have a empty farm house or rural home available please contact me directly through private message

Thank you 🤞
