The UK wants people to eat healthier food. It asked a food expert for ideas. The expert showed his ideas to the government. One idea is to tax food with salt and sugar. The media called this a "snack tax". The second one is to give poorer people free vegetables. The expert said what we eat is doing "terrible damage to our health".

The UK's leader is not happy with the ideas. They could increase the price of snack food. He does not want to tax "hard-working people". He said exercise and less junk food were the best ways to be healthy. The expert said the government must build a better food system, "for our children and grandchildren".
