There has been a mixed reaction to plans announced this week to introduce a sugar tax and reduce added sugars by 40% by 2020. But what do you think?

Campaign group, Action on Sugar held a meeting with Jeremy Hunt MP, Secretary of State for health, to combat the growing obesity crisis by launching a seven-step plan.

British Sugar, leading supplier of sugar to the UK has called the plans ‘misleading’, and say that it is wrong to target just one thing. They also said that calls for reformulation of products were not always practical.

On the other hand, nutritionists have supported plans, and think that they are a good way to tackle the issue of obesity.
