Food Standards Scotland (FSS) is encouraging people in Scotland to give up unnecessary treats every Tuesday as part of its drive to start breaking Scotland’s unhealthy snacking habits. Taking a first step to changing our diet, such as cutting down the number of calorie rich snacks we eat and drink, can help to reduce the risk of obesity, Type 2 diabetes and some cancers.
FSS will be sharing its #treatfreetuesday tips for avoiding unhealthy snacking habits on social media throughout the campaign. Further campaign information, ideas and advice are available on the FSS website.
