Chief Medical Officer calls for extended sugar and salt bans

21st December 2018

The country's Chief Medical Officer, Dame Sally Davies, wants a ban on adding sugar to baby food, and further taxes to cut the nation's salt and sugar intake. However, the real meat to the report is in looking to 2040, and trying to normalise healthy behaviours. This, in the longer-term is the key to resolving many of the negative consumption externalities associated with our eating and drinking habits.
