Complaints about a poster which claimed feeding meat to youngsters amounted to child abuse have been rejected by the [UK] Advertising Standards Authority. The advertisement by animal rights charity Peta demonstrated the group's "fervent beliefs", the watchdog said.<br><br><br><br>
The National Farmers' Union and members of the public were among the objectors. It was claimed the campaign trivialised child abuse or was irresponsible because it could result in parents removing nutrients from a child's diet.<br><br><br><br>
The poster, which attracted 67 complaints, features a photograph of an overweight child eating a burger above the text "Feeding kids meat is child abuse. Fight the fat - Go Veg".<br><br><br><br>

Hmmm that's interesting. Of course, we could probably expect the opposite ruling here in the US.
