Why is this important?
Many of us don’t realise that some food products we buy threaten our health . Some big businesses are making a lot of money selling us products with a lot of sugar, salt, fats and added sweeteners. We are seeing more and more people in our communities suffering from diseases like type-2 diabetes and high blood pressure that can lead to stroke or heart disease . The good news is that the government is listening to public health experts and considering regulations that would force businesses to put warning labels on their unhealthy products . This will help us to identify unhealthy foods.
We only have until the 21 September 2023 to send in enough public comments to show the health department that we support warning labels on all unhealthy food and regulating advertising aimed at children and misleading health claims.
