Reducing health harms of foods high in fat, sugar or salt: consultation

Too many of us in Scotland have a poor diet and an unhealthy weight, which can have a negative impact on our health and wellbeing. This is in part because we generally consume too many calories and too much fat, sugar and salt.

In seeking to reduce population-level intakes of calories, fat, saturated fat, free sugar and salt, we are seeking views on restricting the promotion and marketing of food and drink high in fat, sugar or salt with little or no beneficial nutritional value where they are sold to the public.
