Jamie Oliver bans daughter, 14, from posting selfies

Jamie Oliver bans daughter, 14, from posting selfies
From BBC - November 17, 2017

TV chef Jamie Oliver has said he has banned his 14-year-old daughter from sharing selfies, describing them as the unhealthy "sugar of social media".

"We ban Daisy from doing selfies and mainly she does not, but a couple slip up," the father-of-five told the Lifestyle News Hound podcast.

Oliver, 42, says he is among the first generation of parents learning to deal with children sharing photos online.

He and wife Jools regularly post family photos on their own Instagram pages.

But Oliver, a prominent campaigner for healthy eating, described teenage girls' use of Instagram as "frightening".

'Pouty lips'

He said: "I am going to generalise massively here, but from my observation so far, at 13 to 14, the kind of pictures that girls are putting up, just from what I have seen, split off 50:50.

"[There's] normal young girl, and then this weird hybrid of - dare I say it - quite porno sort of luscious kind of pouty lips, sort of pushing boobs out."
