Sugar Content In Fruit Drinks

EDM number 513 in 2014-15, proposed by Keith Vaz on 17/11/2014.
Categorised under the topics of Children and families, Diseases, Food, Health education and preventive medicine and Obesity.

That this House is alarmed by Action on Sugar's report that a quarter of supermarket fruit drinks contain more sugar than the equivalent volume of Coca-Cola; notes that these drinks are commonly advertised as healthy and targeted at children; further notes a quarter of the products tested met or exceeded the maximum daily adult intake recommended by the World Health Organisation; is concerned such products are contributing to record levels of tooth decay, obesity and type 2 diabetes among children; and calls on the Government to implement legislation to reduce levels of sugar content in food and drink products.

This motion has been signed by a total of 41 MPs.
