Dear [your State Health Minister name will be automatically entered],
This generation of kids could be the first to live shorter lives than their parents. The reason? Much of the food we eat contains dangerously high levels of added sugar, often without us realising it.
The World Health Organisation recommends we consume 6 teaspoons of added sugar a day for good health, but many Australians are consuming more than 3 times this amount.
We have no clear way of knowing how much sugar has been added to our food - making it almost impossible to follow this advice.
We need to know what’s in our food so we can make healthy choices for our families. Clear, easy-to-understand labels are essential so busy parents can tell at a glance what’s in the food we buy ourselves and our kids.
The United States has recently changed their food labelling to include added sugars. We can do it too!
Please Minister, support initiatives that ensure added sugar is clearly labelled on the nutrition panel of food products.
Show you’re on the side of parents trying to do their best, not food industry giants trying to smuggle sugar into the shopping trolley to fatten their own profits.
