What is the point of imposing a sugar tax if goods without sugar also increase in price i.e. regular Coca Cola was £1.25 increases to £1.49 after sugar tax however Diet Coca Cola also increases by the same amount so why buy the Diet Coca Cola? This applies to many other brands.

I hope someone in power is monitoring the affordability of good healthy eating and drinking e.g it shouldn't be fresh fruit is expensive for many.

.. but lets not forget that it doesn't have to contain lots of 'sugar' to be unhealthy, and things that have lots of 'sugar' aren't all unhealthy

 

eg

diet coke vs Oranges and Pears


I express my honestly held opinions - they are nothing more or less than that.

... Its just doing some due diligence that makes them seem unusual ...

Not sure of your thought comparison but i've heard diet coke will clean an oven, contains phosphoric acid can weaken bones as pushes out the calcium and linked to chronic kidney disease.Probably some sodium gluconate in there. Aspartame linked to cancer and another nasty phenylalanine.

 

I'd choose oranges and pears:-D

Why are sugar are low fat foods so expensive in comparison to foods that have fats & sugars added/

 

Because the saturated fats and salt add 'body' and 'flavour' to the giblets of animals that the cheap foods are made from

 

If you dont add the saturated fats, salt and sugar, they taste like what they are ... congealed heart attack fat in poo sauce

.. or have to make them from more expensive ingredients.

I make a lot of preserves etc to use my surplus fruit and veg. I hope that I am not forced to charge people I give it to. The sugar content of strawberries is pretty high so my ice cream will be no longer fed to grandchildren and they will have to eat some gloop made of seaweed and corn instead.

Garbage ice cream, you can blame Margaret Thatcher for that. That and sellotape that actually sticks.
