Please sign to say NO TO HFSS FOODS

HFSS - HIGH IN FAT, SUGAR & SALT FOODS
CHILD AND INFANT DIABETES AND OBESITY IS ON THE RISE AND ONE OF THE MAJOR REASONS IS THE CONSUMPTION OF HIGH FATTY FOOD STUFFS THAT ARE HIGH ON THEIR SUGAR AND SALT CONTENT! MOST PARENTS RESORT TO PACKING SUCH HFSS FOODS AS SNACKS.

LET US JOINTLY PETITION THE GOVERNMENT FOR ACTION ON THIS IN THE FOLLOWING MANNER -
1. TO INITIATE ACTION FROM FSSAI TO IDENTIFY AND CATEGORIZE AND MARK (COLOR CODE) SUCH HFSS FOODS SO AS TO ALERT THE CONSUMER

2. TO LEVY SMALL NOMINAL CHARGES ON COMPANIES MANUFACTURING SUCH HFSS FOODS SO AS TO DISSUADE THEM FROM MANUFACTURING SUCH AND / OR TO MODIFY THE INGREDIENTS THAT GO INTO PRODUCTS.

THIS IS REALLY THE NEED OF THE HOUR NOW, NOT AFTER 10 YEARS WHEN LIFESTYLE ILLNESSES HAVE DEBILITATED OUR YOUNGSTERS OF TOMORROW.

PLEASE SIGN AND SHOW YOUR SUPPORT.
THANK YOU.
The Petition was also marked to:
FSSAI
FOOD SAFETY DEPARTMENT
FOOD AND AGRICULTURE MINISTRY

Madam, Its a very good subject and the need of the hour to save our next generation. I would suggest you to create this petition on other sites like Change.Org / Avaaz, it has better media reach and are very popular, hence you can get the desired no of signatures more easily there. more

Instead of expecting fssai to label foods for fats, sugars and salt, the 'parents'/ individuals should not forget their responsibility to know which food consumption they should restrict for their children and themselves! fssai labeling is not going to change anything. Again it will be controversial as salt and fats consumption in the correct proportions is required as part of our diet. more

1. These 'rich' foods must not be consumed by rich people.
1.a. These foods can be consumed by poor, malnourished / under nourished people.
2. In fact, the transportation of packaged goods, and therefore its availability is very high in city centers, and yet poor in availability in rural and remote areas.
2.a. These foods are packed hygienically, can be transported without wastage to remote areas safely, and the knowledge of the varieties are unknownst to VVIPs such as home minister,IAS / KAS officers and CM of karnataka - for example providing RTE KesariBath / BisibeleBath to flood -torn areas such as Kodagu. Here RTE stands for Ready to Eat - does not require cooking. We saw the high officials toss Parle G biscuit packets to the affected people. RTE has been available from MTR and ITC foods since nearly 30 years now !
3. These foods are priced reasonably.
4. If you drink a Pepsi, for example, it is suggested to be consumed with a snack such as these foods, as a cool drink itself is un-heathly to consume. This is a zero-protein drink, not recommended as it can cause fainting, as I once witnessed in Columbo airport.
4.a But when the cool dink is consumed with a pa cket of fried peanuts / chana / cashew / any other solid / fried food, it makes a healthier snack treat.
