Incentive should be introduced to encourage people to buy brown foods – experts

pastizz, pizza or a sausage roll only cost a few euro cents……however obesity in Malta costs the country over €36 million a year. It is estimated that seven out of 10 persons in Malta are obese.

The University’s Department of Health and Consumer Studies head, Professor Suzanne Piscopo, said that she agrees with the proposal being considered in Malta that there will be no shops selling pastizzi a corner away from schools.

Prof. Piscopo stated during Insights programme that talks are underway in Malta on the introduction of a tax on sugar drinks, such as lemonades and soft drinks. However, she feels that there should also be an incentive to encourage people to buy brown food, such as for example pasta and bread.
