Breakfast “pick-me-up” is over 4% alcohol
Following the Green Party’s alert yesterday that children eating foods high in sugar results in a high sugar intake, ACTivists Auckland President and spokesperson on alcohol, Stuart Wilson, is alarmed that people could be consuming up to six cans of beer worth of alcohol before breakfast.
“Extensive research by ACTivists has shown that any person who consumes six cans of beer for breakfast will be consuming six cans of beer worth of alcohol” Mr Wilson said.
“Obviously, widespread consumption of this nature will result in health issues, similar to what Sue Kedgley worries will happen to children consuming sugar.”
“It’s no surprise that children eating sugary foods will suffer the health risks associated with a high sugar intake. What’s really at issue is that it’s not for politicians to decide what our children should eat.”
Mr Wilson said “creating a scare story for political gain, as Sue Kedgley has done, just indicates that politicians are unsuited for the role of parenting the nation. Bringing up children is best left to their families, and not usurped by Government.”
