Wales has an 'obesity epidemic', says health minister
Wales is suffering from an "obesity epidemic", Health Minister Mark Drakeford has said.
He is calling for a regulation system to be put in place to cut the amount of sugar in our food.
Mr Drakeford said public health would benefit if it was mandatory for the food industry to reduce sugar content.
While admitting obesity is still a problem, he added that smoking levels and the number of youngsters drinking alcohol has dropped.
