Tesco banning Ribena to combat child obesityWatch this thread
It's like banning Bacardi Breezer to combat alcoholism.
Also by the by, Tesco's own brand High Juice Blackcurrant squash is 20% sugar, putting in the high sugar range, removing that too I assume?
The incompetence of the people at Tesco is astounding. I suppose years of falsifying sales wasn't bad enough, so now they're just going for good ol' dumbassery to help them to their grave.
I doubt Ribena leads to child obesity. Why not remove the donuts and countless brands of chocolate? The stupidity of Tesco overwhelms me.
No need to make products looks like the problem, it's the lack of care and knowledge from parents that is the problem.
A lot of obese actually drink sugar free soda's and that leads to some conspiracy theorists to believe sweetners cause obesity. Rubbish they are just eating far too much food while I do think those who drink a lot of sugary drink may eat less as they're their calories from drink instead of food?
Aaha, though many sweeteners do increase appetite in many people. So while they don't cause weight gain themselves, they certainly don't help those trying to lose weight.
