  • Action on Sugar supports the targeted 20 percent reduction in sugar which they believe is achievable by the year 2020 if food manufacturers commit to it.
  • The campaign to reduce sugar consumption in children has received widespread support from dentists; they advocate for measures that include effective public education, taxation, and changes to advertising and marketing

The BDA is supporting Action on Sugar’s call for a reduction in the shocking levels of sugar in some popular foods, many of which are aimed at children.
