PLP - well said. Parents should stand up to their responsibilities one of which is to ensure that the provide their children withas healthy a diet and environment as they can afford. I do not think putting 20% on the price of a fizzy drink will have any effect whatsoever. There is already a wide price range for the same fizzydrink across the island. I have been charged significantly more in Waitrose than in the co-op and as forthe airport they just have ridiculous prices. In the UK and I suspect in Guernsey it is the demise of the schoold playing fields and competitive sports in schools that has been a major contributor to the obese child. All this rubbish about every child must feel that they have taken part and achieved. The world is competitive and sport teaches you not only how to win but also how to deal with disappointment as well a getting you physically fit.
