sugar tax?

Leila Haywood

sweet as sugar

There is currently a push for a sugar tax in Australia, with support from the World Heart Federation president, with the thought that milk can be more expensive than soft drinks, and is a move that would be especially beneficial for children.

People acquire a taste for certain foods as a young child so it is vitally important to implement healthy eating choices from a very early age. For instance, drinking water instead of juice when thirsty can make a big difference to life habits, and sugar consumption.

The Turnbull government believe that a sugar tax is not the answer to the obesity crisis in Australia. Two thirds of adults in Australia, and 20% of children, are overweight or obese, which places an enormous amount of pressure on their hearts.
