Record a Video: Tell Victoria Atkins to Protect Child Health
At Bite Back, we’ve had enough of the never ending junk food ads that show up on our screens! We’re surrounded by junk food. You may have already sent an email to Victoria Atkins, and shared your story with us about how your family are being bombarded by junk food ads. Now, we want the Secretary of State for Health to hear from you directly.
Victoria Atkins, UK Government Secretary of State for Health, has the power and responsibility to protect our health and regulate the tactics used by food companies. This includes banning junk food ads online, and on TV before 9pm.
The ban was due to begin January 2023, then January 2024, and now the Government says the ban won’t come in until October 2025 — after the next general election!
We want Victoria Atkins to take action now to protect our health.
