Don’t let Boris Johnson choose Coca Cola’s profits over our children’s health.
A third of our children are leaving primary school overweight or obese but Boris Johnson has said he wants to scrap the sugar tax if he becomes Prime Minister. We can’t let him do that.
Excess sugar consumption is linked to obesity and terrible conditions like Type 2 diabetes which cause heart attacks, strokes, blindness and amputations.
The sugar tax removed 90 million kilograms of sugar from soft drinks in its first year. It raised £340 million that was invested in school sports. It’s helping our children get healthy. I'll be writing to Boris Johnson to say no to scrapping the sugar tax.
