A poll for ITV News by ComRes has found that a majority of people would like compulsory health warning labels on food and drinks that are high in sugar.
The poll, of more than 2,000 people, revealed:
- 81% want compulsory warning labels
- 35% would like a new tax imposed on food and drinks especially high in sugar
- 82% support controls on advertising food and drinks high in sugar to children
It's already clear most of us eat too much, so the focus really needs to be how, as a country, we go about changing our sugar-eating habits.
Sugar can be labelled in multiple ways, making it harder to spot.
ITV News looked the added sugars in several everyday food products.
