What goes into crisps goes into who?

Friday, September 22, 2006

Children who eat a bag of potato chips (35g) daily, consume 5 liters (1.3 US gallons) of cooking oil every year. That's the message the British Heart Foundation is looking to spread via their new ad campaign. According to BHF, "nearly a fifth of children eat two packets of crisps per day."

BHF is also calling for a ban on the marketing of junk food products to children, and advocating for cooking skills to become a compulsory part of schooling.
