MELBOURNE , Aug. 1 (Xinhua) -- Toys can have a significant influence on the eating choices of children, an Australian study has found.

The study, published by the Cancer Council of Victoria (CCV) on Tuesday, found that children aged between five and nine years old were more likely to choose a healthy food option if the meal came with a free toy, such as a character from a popular movie.

More than 1,000 children were offered a number of healthy and unhealthy meal choices after watching a trailer for a film.

Overall Air Jordan 6 Gatorade Pre Order , children were more likely to choose the unhealthy option, but the interest in the healthy meals increased significantly when a toy was offered.

Jane Martin, a member of the Obesity Policy Coalition, said that the study proved that the marketing around unhealthy food choices aimed at children should be restricted.

"It's very, very hard to protect your kids from this kind of promotion; it's virtually impossible," Martin told Australian media on Tuesday.

"With one in four Australian kids currently overweight or obese Air Jordan 6 Gatorade For Sale , we should be supporting parents to make healthier choices, and not setting them up to battle with their kids over unhealthy food.

"I think that most children would not be requesting to go into a fast food franchise without the toy and the collectables."

She went as far as to say that toys and giveaways should only be allowed to be paired with healthy options.

"It shows that these kinds of promotions can be used in a way to harness children's interest and desires, and use it to put healthy food in front of them," Martin said.

Helen Dixon, lead researcher from the CCV, agreed with Martin Air Jordan 6s Gatorade , saying companies should have to fulfill nutrition criteria before giveaway promotions could be run.

"We know from analysis of advertising content on TV and other media that unhealthy food products like sweets, breakfast cereals, sugary junk food, snack food, fast food is very much overrepresented," Dixon said.

"We know marketing works Air Jordan 6 Retro Gatorade , companies wouldn't invest so much in it if they didn't think it worked."

CANBERRA, May 9 (Xinhua) -- The Australian government on Tuesday handed down the federal budget for 2017-18, with Treasurer Scott Morrison describing the measures as "responsible" and ones which will bring Australia's budget back to surplus by 2020-21.

In the lead-up to budget night, the government said its main focus would be to put "downward pressure on the rising cost of living", and it has attempted to do so by raising taxes for banks and multinational businesses while actively trying to ease the nation's housing affordability crisis.

Big winners out of the announced measures include small businesses, jobseekers Air Jordan 6 Gatorade , those who require healthcare and first-home buyers, while large multinationals, the nation's "big five" banks and foreign investors will all be hit with tax increases to reduce the nation's current budget deficit of 29.4 billion Australian dollars (21.6 billion U.S. dollars).

Morrison said the government would achieve budget balance, and eventually surplus, by cutting spending, introducing new taxes which won't affect "everyday Australians" and by investing heavily in "good debt" Air Jordan 6 Like Mike Gatorade , major infrastructure projects which create "job and growth" such as a second Sydney airport, the Snowy Hydroelectric scheme 2.0 and an improved regional rail link.

"Our plan is to grow our economy, to guarantee the essentials, to reduce cost of living pressures, and ensure the government lives within its means," Morrison told Parliament on Tuesday.

"From 2018-19 Air Jordan 6 Like Mike Pre Order , the government will no longer be borrowing to pay for our everyday expenses.

"I can confirm tonight that the budget is projected to return to balance in 2021 and reminds and surplus over the medium term. The underlying cash balance will improve from a forecast deficit of 29.4 billion (21.6 billion dollars) in 2017-18 to a projected surplus of 7.4 billion (5.4 billion dollars) by 2020-21."

In order to do so, the Treasurer has said the government would be introducing a new, 0.06 percent levy on the nation's five "big banks" which will raise an estimated 6.2 billion dollars (4.56 billion dollars) over four years, while tougher measures will be introduced to ensure that multinational companies are paying their fair share of tax.

Morrison said the big banks would not pass-on the levy to their customers, calling for "greater accountability" in the sector, while he said multinationals had for too long been able to avoid paying their fair share of tax to the Australian government.

"The Australian Taxation Office (ATO) has already raised 2.9 billion Australian dollars (2.13 billion dollars) in tax liabilities this year Air Jordan 6 Like Mike For Sale , against a group of just seven large multinational companies, and expects to raise more than 4 billion Australian dollars (2.95 billion dollars) in total this financial year from large companies and multinationals," Morrison said.

"We are toughening the multinational anti-avoidance laws of this Government to extend the rules to structures involving foreign partnerships or trusts, and clamping down on aggressive structuring using hybrids."

Foreigners have also been deemed to be "losers" out of the budget papers, with a foreign worker levy to be introduced for Australian companies which turn to other nations to fill skilled worker shortages.

The levy will net the government up to 5,000 dollars (3 Air Jordan 6 Like Mike 2017 ,680 U.S. dollars) per wo. Wholesale Jerseys From China   Wholesale Jerseys Free Shipping   Wholesale NCAA Jerseys From China   Wholesale New NBA Jerseys   Wholesale College Basketball Jerseys   Wholesale Authentic NBA Jerseys   Cheap College Jerseys Free Shipping   Cheap New Nike NBA Jerseys   Cheap Jerseys   Cheap Jerseys China
