As per a study being taken out by the Cancer Council Victoria and Obesity Policy Coalition, it has been revealed that Australians are in favor of having traffic light system as a scheme that prevents showcasing of junk food at the time when children watch television.
The study, which has also been published in the Health Promotion Journal of Australia, is based on a survey in which 87% of the surveyors have said that they would also like to have light system on food packets, which will indicate healthy eating options to them.
In order to reach at the above given result, the study researchers assessed 1,500 Australians and found huge support for tragic light system. People aged between 18 and 64 years took part in the survey, so there was complete diversity in terms of age.
It shall, however, be noted that the 87% people, who have said that they are in favor of having traffic light system, have also said that food outlets should make efforts to reduce the fat content in their products.
"What struck me is how much higher public support for a tax on unhealthy foods or soft drinks are compared to the public approval for tobacco taxation policies", said the study researchers.
