The ‘Bundesärztekammer’ (German Dentist Organisation) says that in Germany almost 1/5 of all infants of less than three years of age and about 40% of all infants under three years from economically-weak areas in Germany have caries due to being fed too many sweets and convenience products. Baby teeth just can’t handle this as well as mature teeth. In addition to that it is kind of crazy that children from industrial nations are fed something that has no nutritious value whatsoever just because it tastes fine, while in less fortunate countries children of about the same age are forced to work on cocoa and sugar plantations to produce these very sweets.

In Germany many schools offer sugary and palm oil-soaked food, claiming they can’t buy the more expensive, but healthier stuff for hundreds of students and school staff. Now some researches done by ‘Zeitleo’ prove that actually schools only save 5 ct per student by buying cheap and unhealthy food.

>‘Agrarheute’ says that this week the ‘Bundeskabinett’ (Federal Cabinet) decided to reduce the amount of sugar, fat and salt in convenience products as far as possible. The amount of sugar in cereals for example shall be reduced by 20% by 2025. Also there are concrete plans to what extent the amount of salt shall be reduced in bakery products and in convenience products.
>Also ‘Agrarheute’ says that producers of sugarcane and sugar beet can barely survive at the moment, because of prices for these mass products having sunk so low by the end of 2018.

The German ‘Landesuntersuchungsamt’ says that the producer ‘Snack Time’ warns about consuming their sandwich ‘Sweet Chili Chicken’. A health-threatening amount of listeria has been found in this sandwich. They say that as the listeria fed on the sugary bread of this sandwich they spread very fast.
