Councils vote no to sugary drinks policy

Councils vote no to sugary drinks policy

The New Zealand Dental Association has expressed its disappointment after Manawatu and Rangitikei councils voted against developing a Sugar Sweetened Beverages Policy.

Local Government New Zealand decided in July to urge councils nationwide to introduce their own policy aiming to reduce sugar consumption in users of council-run workplaces and facilities.

Separately, a policy brief by the New Zealand Beverage Guidance Panel recommending a tax on sugary drinks is currently before Parliament.
