How many pictures of fast food have appeared on adverts across the TfL network since your junk food advertising policy came into effect?

Transport for London cannot provide this information. This is because there is no definition of ‘fast food’ or what would be included under this definition.

The high in fat, sugar and salt  (HFSS) restrictions use the Food Standards Agency’s Nutrient Profile Model to determine whether a specific food or non-alcoholic drink is considered HFSS. The HFSS restrictions do not assess food and non-alcoholic drinks by category i.e. ‘fast food’.
