This is independent confirmation that the soft drinks industry levy, a key part of our world-leading Childhood Obesity Plan, will be a potent tool in the fight against childhood obesity. Not only that, it will help save our children's teeth and cut rates of type 2 diabetes. Sugar-laden soft drinks are a recognised driver of childhood obesity and through our broader sugar reduction programme we're committed to helping families make healthier choices.
