This research assesses whether the self-regulation of the marketing of unhealthy food and beverages to children in New Zealand is adequate. The researchers analysed the New Zealand Advertising Standards Authority Codes and related complaints and decisions. They found that the public health law framework in this environment does not adequately support the protection of children from such advertising and call for more stringent marketing restrictions and enforcement.
