Health groups want candy companies to stop putting Peppa Pig and Disney characters on sweet wrappers. They do this to get children to buy candies. The groups said 51 per cent of products using cartoon characters were too high in fat, sugar and salt. They were too unhealthy to advertise on children's TV shows.

The health groups looked at 526 products. The Peppa Pig Candy Bites were among the worst. These were 99 per cent sugar. The Action on Sugar group is shocked because companies are making money from children by using cartoon characters. It said children cannot say no to chocolates, sweets and fizzy drinks.
