Denise Piper Reporter from Northern News

A warning has been issued to mothers who breastfeed about not drinking, after a two-month-old baby was found to have six times the legal drink-driving limit of alcohol in her system. Do you think the warnings are clear? What is your experience with breastfeeding? (Please put NFP if your comments are not for publication.)

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?
