Put a ban on diet adverts from TV !

This petition had 381 supporters

  • With your support I'd like to try and put a stop to diet adverts promoting low fat and fat free foods. It has been shown that these adverts can have a bad impact on your mental health and on a person trying to recover for an eating disorder,
  • As a person still in recovery from a 6 year battle with a eating disorder myself and a 10 month admission I find that these advert can be very triggering. The fact that children and adolescence are exposed to these adverts worry me as the they focus a lot on body image and that being slim is a must. From others I have spoken to they believe that these adverts had an impact to the start of there eating disorders and believe these had a role to play in the start of there'er eating disorder.
  • As well as this these foods are not actually that good for you as they tend to be full of starch and sweeteners. Please help me put a stop to hundreds of children and adolescence being exposed to these adverts to help prevent the negative effects.

      Much appreciated
