The Food and Drink Federation has criticised the Parents' Jury, co-ordinated by the Food Commission,for giving awards to foods it considered to be unhealthy for children.
The independent jury of 1,200 parents condemned Gary Lineker, for promoting "fatty and salty" Walkers crisps, Kellogg's Coco Pops, for "causing conflicts between sweet-toothed children and worried parents", and gave juice drinks the "food labels fibs" award.
But the FDF's deputy director general Martin Paterson said demonising individual products was unhelpful.
"Parents and children together can create a healthy diet from the wide range of foods available.No one food is bad, balance is the key."
