Food Standards Agency organises public debate on promotion of foods and children

The Food Standards Agency has organised a public debate to discuss the issue of food promotion to children and the effect it has on children’s diets and rising levels of childhood obesity.

The debate, entitled “Defusing the diet timebomb” and featuring a panel of informed and lively speakers, was due to take place in London at the QE2 Conference Centre, Westminster, on Tuesday 27 January.

The event was set to be chaired by broadcaster Jeremy Vine.
