Does your child's sugar intake worry you? And is childhood obesity an issue that concerns you or which you think the Government should take serious steps to address?
Well, it looks like Theresa May isn't in a hurry to help, judging by the childhood obesity plan unveiled by the Government today.
Critics have condemned the plan for not being far-reaching enough, and Jamie Oliver – who has urged the Government to tackle childhood obesity – described the plan as a "disappointing and, frankly, underwhelming strategy" which puts "the health of our future generations at stake".
I have to agree that it seems feeble. Many of the measures it outlines are voluntary recommendations rather than mandatory rulings, and it seems everyone expected something much more robust than cutting 5% of sugar in food and drink products over the next year and 20% by 2020.
As a mum of three the issue of sugary foods is something of a battleground in my house on a daily basis so I feel that the Government has let us down on this issue.
We know that reducing kids' sugar intake is an issue that Playpennies parents feel strongly about, too, judging by the volume of requests we get to hunt down bargains on everything from sugar-free advent calendars to no-added-sugar Easter eggs.
I just debated this very issue on the radio with BBC Hereford and Worcester's Andrew Easton, who suggested that parents should take more responsibility for their part in the childhood obesity crisis, and even accused us of ferrying our kids to school in cars instead of walking, feeding them unhealthy dinners and then "sitting around eating chips" and hoping for the best rather than taking an active role on our children's health and nutrition.
Obviously I disagree and – as I said on Andrew's show – I think it's nothing short of immoral that the Government has failed to ban TV advertisements for unhealthy foods before the 9pm watershed, and abandoned plans to ban junk food from supermarket checkouts. What a missed opportunity.
The sugar levy on soft drinks is good news but even that's not enough because for many parents of younger children, sugary drinks aren't the problematic products – it's things like sugar-laden breakfast cereals emblazoned with cartoon characters to make them appeal to children, and the advertising of high sugar products and junk food promotions targeted at our kids.
The plan's proposals around encouraging children to exercise at school every day is sound, but how seriously is the average school really going to take what the Government has unashamedly called a 'voluntary' measure? Are under-resourced schools really going to add an hour of exercise because the Government has effectively said it would be nice if they did?
And don't get me started on the Government's failure to ban sweets from supermarket checkouts. Our politicians had a whopping opportunity to make it easier for parents to offer children healthy, nutritious food and drinks and I feel they've flaked out.
But we'd like to hear your thoughts on this topic. How concerned are you about childhood obesity, and how much thought do you give to your child's sugar intake? How do you feel about the Government's plan? Let us know by leaving us a comment below or joining the debate over on our Facebook page.
