Labour’s bold Child Health Action Plan: Ban on caffeinated energy drinks for U16s

To combat 14 years of Tory neglect, Labour Party under the leadership of Keir Starmer has revealed plan to create “healthiest generation of children”, ahead
of the general elections.

The broader mission includes shifting NHS focus towards prevention to improve healthy life expectancy and reduce regional health disparities within a decade.

Proposing a Child Health Action Plan aimed at fostering the healthiest generation of children ever, the party has plans to ban the sale of highly caffeinated
energy drinks to under-16s.

Addressing concerns from health and education experts about inadequate labeling, drinks with more than 150mg of caffeine per liter will be restricted from retail
and online sales to minors, with enforcement through trading standards.

Labour leader underscores the significance of children’s health as a national wellbeing indicator.

He criticises the current government for its short-term approach, which he claims has led to deteriorating health among the nation’s children.
