    Chocolate bars have gotten massively smaller in size anyway and what happens is people buy massive treatbags / multipacks over indulging and eating more than they would if the original portion size was kept

    Maybe Black Mirror could make an episode based on you, a person so devoid of self control and responsibility they download a government app that makes all life decisions for them, bedtimes / when to shower / brush teeth / what views you should express

    Buy two bars instead. Stick it to the Man.

    Anyhow, maybe the government should focus on promoting healthy eating and responsible parenting instead of meddling with chocolate bar sizes. Maybe take fat kids away from their incompetent, spineless parents.

    The government are planning to reduce sweet or chocolate bars in the terms of size by 20% in a bid to tackle child obesity. Personally I feel this will not change anything if they do try and reduce the size, thoughts?

    It's a small step forward in the sense that people tend not to buy ten bars to get the same 600g they got before but it's not enough. We need to limit wider packet sizing and we need to tax production of 'unhealthy' goods.
