Cadbury's Dairy Milk to offer low sugar version

A staple of lunch boxes and peckish workers across the UK - Cadbury's Dairy Milk - will come in a low sugar version from next year. Last year Public Health England challenged the food industry to reduce sugar levels by a fifth by 2020, or reduce the size of unhealthy products. "This announcement shows reducing sugar in chocolate confectionary is possible, and we look forward to seeing future reductions across more of its confectionary range," said Alison Tedstone, chief nutritionist at PHE. Earlier this year the government introduced a sugar tax on soft drinks, but some have called for high-sugar foods to be taxed as well.
