Coke Christ­mas truck ban

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

THE Coca-Cola Christ­mas truck tour should be banned in Bri­tain, pub­lic health ex­perts have urged.

They ar­gue the soft drinks firm’s truck – which made 44 stops across the UK giv­ing away cans of the iconic fizzy pop over the re­cent fes­tive pe­riod – pro­motes the con­sump­tion of “un­healthy” sug­ary drinks to kids.

Robin Ire­land from Food Ac­tive, a cam­paign which tack­les ris­ing obe­sity lev­els, said: “We can cel­e­brate with­out al­low­ing Coca-Cola to hi­jack Christ­mas by bring­ing false gifts of bad teeth and weight prob­lems to our chil­dren.”
