Children eating more healthily could be a vain hope, given the number of ads for junk food they see.

This amounts to up to 1,000 every year, according to researchers in Australia. During peak viewing times the number of ads for healthy foods is half the number for junk stuff.

Liverpool University revealed last year that British children can see as many as 12 ads for junk food every hour during family shows like The Voice.
