"Kids TV as we know, or have known it, is under threat. With growing support for a ban of high fat, salt and sugar foods (HFSS) alongside children's programming, it looks likely that ITV will seek to reduce its children's output to compensate for the lost ad revenue. Many in the industry are worried about what this will do to kids TV in this country.

TV is first and foremost an ADVERTISING VEHICLE. The shows are just pretty pictures and happy music that gets you to sit still so your mind can receive the advertising. If the fatty food advertising is banned, the "content" that surrounds it, like throw away styrofoam peanuts, will have to be discarded or reduced.

I love how these self-important TV folks announce that they're teaching children and "keeping the stories" of children alive for generations. If anything, they're taking away the poor kids' creativity and giving them junk-food ads as the images of their psyches.
