New Campaign to Cut Sugar in Foods have been pushed
A new campaign group has been shaped to reduce how much sugars added to the food we eat or the sugar content in our food and in soft drinks in an effort to tackle obesity as well as diabetes in the united kingdom.
The team behind ‘Action on Sugar‘, aims to help people stay away from “hidden sugars” and get producers to reduce the ingredient over time. The campaign set targets for the food industry to slowly add less sugar in a manner that there will be no difference in the taste of the consumers.
