The NIHR Policy Research Programme invites proposals for a research project to capture the totality of children’s exposure to advertising of food and drinks high in fat, sugar and salt (HFSS) from all types of media during the course of the day.

This research will form a baseline of exposure for a post-implementation review following a regulatory policy to introduce a 9pm TV watershed for HFSS products and a restriction of paid-for HFSS advertising online. This will be commissioned through a one-stage process as data collection must be completed before the end of 2022 at the latest.

The deadline for applications is 02 November 2021 at 1pm.
