Should our Governments have joined up thinking on Healthy eating?
Our Department of Health is busy promoting fighting obesity and related diseases which they reckon will cost us millions annually while at the same time companies which manufacture junk foods receive massive grants to expand junk food production.
I suppose junk food production creates jobs just as the treatment of diseases caused by junk food creates jobs.
Would it not be better not to promote junk food production by not providing grants for the sector? That would be a start before moving to raise taxes on junk foods!
The Government have just announced a half million euro grant for a junk food company!
