Motion text

That this House is deeply concerned at the evidence gathered by the group Action on Sugar, which shows a large number of fruit snacks aimed at children contain unacceptably high levels of sugar; notes that of the 94 products researched by Action on Sugar, 85 per cent were more sugary than Haribo Starmix sweets; condemns the misleading advertising by manufacturers, which claim that these processed food products are healthy for children; further notes that the overconsumption of high sugar products is partly responsible for record levels of child obesity, rotten teeth and diabetes; and calls on the Government to intervene and set limits on the levels of fat, sugar and salt in children's food products.
