Tax the Can and help people Give Up Loving Pop!
Members of the GULP team and Children’s Food Campaign handed out toothbrushes at the Labour Party Conference last month to remind delegates about the health harms associated with the overconsumption of sugary drinks and the need to “Tax the Can” and to help people “Give Up Loving Pop”.

The demonstration was in response to the British Soft Drinks Association’s sponsorship of a fringe meeting about tackling obesity, their lobbying at the conference and to MPs to stop the Government’s proposed Soft Drinks Industry Levy.
