The World Health Organization (WHO) have released a new guideline, “Policies to protect children from the harmful impact of food marketing” which recommends the development of comprehensive laws to reduce children’s exposure to unhealthy food marketing. This new guideline extends previous recommendations  to limit the adverse effects of unhealthy food marketing on the health of the world’s children. We consider here whether these new recommendations go far enough.
