Companies are reducing the sugar in their products, thanks to plans of a new tax

Nestle has recently announced the reduction of over 2.6 billion teaspoons of sugar from their products over the past 3 years.

Considering the UK has recently experienced oral health crisis with 170 children undergoing teeth extractions every day in 2017, a company as large as Nestle making changes such as these is a step in the right direction.

The BSDHT say that the launch of a "sugar tax" has made companies address their responsibility to protect customers.

The following article has more information on Nestle’s changes, and on the government’s plans to reduce sugar intake in the UK.
