Quotes

"Whether it would be an important income, I am not sure" said Ms O'Shea
In its first policy paper, The Race We Don't Want to Win, the RCPI group said it is time to protect vulnerable children from "slick advertising campaigns to promote foods and drinks that contribute to obesity by imposing a ban"

"The consumption of sugar sweetened drinks is a major driver of childhood weight – and as such there should be a ban on the marketing of these, and similar products, to children."
