The UK will ban online promotions for foods high in fat, sugar or salt.
Such restrictions are proposed to be adopted as part of the fight against the spread of obesity.
So the government plans to ban advertising junk food on television until 21:00 and completely ban on the Internet. Also, the innovations should affect restaurants and pubs, where more than 250 employees work: they will be obliged to indicate the calorie content of products.
Also, from April 2022, supermarkets will ban “two for the price of one” promotions for foods high in fat, salt and sugar.
In addition, the UK government will develop a Fit Miles health reward system.
According to the UK Department of Health, the number of obese men has grown from 6% in 1980 to 27% in 2019, and women – from 9% to 29%.
