Queensland Government Scraps Junk Food and Alcohol Ads

The Queensland government recently announced the banning of junk food and alcohol advertisements at government-owned outdoor sites.

The junk food ban comes as an effort to address childhood obesity including restrictions for out-of-home ads featuring high fat, sugar and salt products and alcohol.

The ban will be implemented in consultation with the advertising industry, health Minister Steven Miles recently said.

The government is currently in talks with the outdoor advertising industry about how the restrictions will be implemented.
