CALLS GROW ON GOVERNMENT

Diabetes UK is urging the Government

to include mandatory targets for food

manufacturers to make their products

healthier in its Childhood Obesity Strategy,

which is due out in the coming weeks and

says the survey shows that the measure

would receive overwhelming public

support. The charity says it is imperative

that the Government implements the

measure as it would help to limit calorie

intake and so would make it easier for

people to eat more healthily. The food

industry has reduced levels of salt in food

significantly over the last 10 years, and

now it's time for them to tackle high levels

of sugar and fat as well.

Along with getting food manufacturers

to make their foods healthier, Diabetes UK

Three quarters of British adults want food

manufacturers to reduce the amount of

saturated fat, salt and added sugar in

their products to make it easier for people

to eat more healthily, according to a new

survey from Diabetes UK. Sixty-nine per

cent of 18 - 24 year olds say they think

food manufacturers should reduce the

amount of saturated fat, added sugar

and salt in their products and this number

rises to 80% of people aged 65 and

over, according to a ComRes survey

commissioned by the charity. People

across all social groups felt equally

strongly on the issue, with no difference

between people who earned more or less,

or whether they worked in the public or

private sector.

is calling on the Government to introduce

a 20 per cent tax on sugar sweetened

soft drinks and to restrict the marketing

of unhealthy foods before the 9pm

watershed to reduce exposure to children.

These measures are also supported by

the Obesity Health Alliance, a grouping

of 26 charities and medical organisations,

which includes Diabetes UK.

ComRes interviewed 2,036 British

adults online between 22-24 January

2016. Data were weighted to be

representative of all adults in Great Britain

aged 18+. ComRes is a member of the

British Polling Council and abides by its

rules.
