Petition Action

Tax high fat or high sugar, fattening foods

Additional Information

Do bring in a tax which makes people pay more for high fat or high sugar foods. Too many obese people complain that lack of money is why they don't buy healthy foods. If unhealthy foods went up in price, obese people would be forced into buying healthier foods. The tax should either go directly towards the costs to the NHS or used to teach people how to cook healthier foods.
