Do you know the reason for the sugar tax ?

Do you know the reason for the sugar tax ?


Yes to stop fattys like me getting fatter
Nanny state again! The sugar tax will do little to stop people buying the drinks they desire/crave. It will only serve to hurt those with little money already by leaving them with even less.

At the end of the day the sugar tax will not make a blind bit of difference to people’s habits.it will just mean they might have to pay more.i won’t stop drinking energy drinks just because the government puts tax on the sugar in them.when will people understand if people say no you can’t have.the more and more you want.

@sam_of_london sugar tax was brought in to try to combat diabetes & other related health conditions associated with excessive sugar intake. Like all things its down to choice and moderation - but if you still choose to, then basically you have to pay for the privilege !!!

That is not correct. Most people in this country , especially kids don't even realise how much harm concentrated sugar solution s are doing to them . Maybe sugar should come as warning as well. Excess consumption of sugar leads to childhood or juvenile diabetes.

Well then why can't they just reduce the amount of sugar in each drink instead of raising the prices. Does seem slightly fishy to me.

Sam this is old news people know this.the same as smoking kills doesn’t and hasn’t stopped people smoking.even how much tobacco is now people still find it out of there limited wages or benefits.i understand where your coming from but it’s a choice and that’s the bottom line.
Since the artificial sweeteners were introduced, obesity and diabetes skyrocketed.... I often see the fatties drink nothing but diet stuff...

I think it is a very good step considering the number of people suffering with obesity related diseases. Why should unhealthy lifestyle of many put unhealthy burden on the NHS and those like me who struggle to stay healthy?

If you added dog pooh and gerbil wee to that list it wouldn’t matter.listing the ingredients doesn’t make a bit of difference.

Fascinating news that no one has stopped smoking as a result. Completely untrue as well.

Alcohol and tobacco are very heavily taxed and come with warning on the packet . Wish the red light traffic system on food should be implemented on Sugar drinks as well.

I agree with you that children should not be allowed sugary drinks.

Why oh ..why
Pure fruit juices are exempt and yet pure orange juice contains 14g of sugar per 100ml. Clearly the tax is nothing to do with sugar intake.

I drink only diet fizzy drinks when I have one btw, and I drink pure orange juice. This tax won’t do a thing

I disagree . At least it will decrease sale of concentrated sugar solutions and media promotion to kids that they are healthy lifestyle choices.

I agree but would that stop it.it may reduce the sugar intake for some.which yes would be a good thing.but I’m a realist and this sugar tax even more so with brexit looming a lovely extra income for the government.i doubt very much those at number 10 will be leaving out afternoon cream teas

It clearly is to do with sugar intake when it’s added sugar. Fruit juice actually has nutritional benefits. Pop and energy drinks don’t.

At least most people here know by now what is band 20 so they can make an informed and educated choice.

I only wish I had as much faith as you. The tax will no doubt have a positive impact on a few, however I don’t believe this tax will drastically change peoples’ lifestyles. I personally will always have a full fat coke, albeit in moderation, and I am in perfect health. For me there can only be one real winner - the government coffers.

The majority may think like this and guzzle down energy drinks but if it stops a few people from getting heath issues then it's a good thing.
I don't think this is about teaching old dogs new tricks, it's about educating the younger generation where this will be the norm.
Just look at taking advertising out of cigarettes, it's stop many a youngster not smoking. The only youngsters I see smoking nowadays are the ones who's parent give them to them like it's a treat, and then then finish them off with an energy drink

Unhealthy people tend to die younger, resulting in saving the NHS money in the long run (not to mention pensions, rent, social services, etc.).

Unfortunately, for some of us, it still has that robot's armpit aftertaste that artificial sweeteners have.

What fact are you stating here ? Only fact here is lots of people in this country are illiterate to the harm done by concentrated sugar solutions. Thanks to the NHS they survive but prevention is better than cure. Thanks , the government has not closed its eyes to the crisis and this will lead to awareness about the sugar poison which affects poor more than the rich.
