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?

What do you think about a load of uncovered dead calves?

Denise Piper Reporter from Northern News

The Aucklander who saw the uncovered trailer said it was a "confronting sight - pretty gross". The driver did not appear to be breaking any laws but farming experts say the calves should've been covered for good taste. What do you think - is this just the reality of farming or should the public be protected from such sights?
