Corbyn would limit childrens' exposure to TV junk food ads
Jeremy Corbyn has also pledged to curtail the rights of big businesses to push unhealthy food on children.
A Corbyn-led government would extend the current ban on junk food ads around kids' shows to all telly before 9pm. Labour has claimed this would reduce children's exposure to them by 82%.
The Socialist backs plans to restrain big business's efforts to tell kids to eat junk. Corbyn should also campaign on nationalising the big supermarket and restaurant chains.
Linked to democratic planning, this could help make sure healthy food is more widely available.
