Baby Junk Food - Read Those Labels!

Quoted

Food maker Cow & Gate is to discontinue a biscuits range for babies which was found to contain hydrogenated fat.

Cow & Gate said its Bear, Berry Bear, and Animal Friends biscuits would no longer be on sale after June.

The Children's Food Campaign discovered more than 50 products from various firms with higher-than-suggested levels of saturated fat, salt or sugar.



Quoted


The charity also found high levels of sugar in Farley's Rusks, made by Heinz.

It said the product were 29% sugar, more than some biscuits for adults.
