Sugar Content In Fruit Snacks

EDM number 61 in 2015-16, proposed by Keith Vaz on 01/06/2015.
Categorised under the topics of Children and families, Diseases, Food, Health education and preventive medicine and Obesity.

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.

This motion has been signed by a total of 45 MPs.
