Campaign aimed at children and young adults seeks to curb rise in obesity and tooth decay

The celebrity chef Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall is joining forces with Labour’s deputy leader, Tom Watson, to ask consumers to halt their consumption of fizzy drinks for a month.

Their backing of the Fizz Free February campaign coincides with the release of figures that show a 70% rise in the number of teenagers with diabetes over four years.

The campaign is aimed particularly at young adults and children and hopes to break the habitual demand for drinks with added sugar, which can in turn lead to obesity and tooth decay.
