Mr Dimbleby the National Food Strategy and it to the UK government earlier this week. The strategy included two main ideas. One is a tax on food containing salt and sugar, which the media have a "snack tax". The second idea is to give vegetables to poorer people for free. Mr Dimbleby that what we eat, and how it is produced, is "terrible damage" to the environment and to our health. Poor diet to 64,000 deaths a year in England and great pressure on hospitals.

Despite the government for the strategy, Prime Minister Boris Johnson is not happy with it. He said he could not it because he was "not attracted to the idea of extra taxes on hard-working people". Mr Johnson said the strategy could the price of snack food by up to 13 per cent. He added that the best way to obesity and to healthier lifestyles was for people to and eat less junk food. Mr Dimbleby said: "With the right leadership from government, it is well within our power to the system so it makes both us and the planet healthier." He : "We must now the moment to a better food system for our children and grandchildren."
