50% Agree With Tesco Decision To Delist Added Sugar Juice Drinks

According to the latest Consumer Insights report from Empathy Research, just under half of Irish adults (49%) agree with Tesco’s recent decision to de-list added-sugar kids' juice drinks.

Looking at this by gender, significantly more females (52%) were in support of Tesco’s controversial announcement than males (45%). Both respondents with and without children appear to be of equal agreement (47% with children vs. 50% without children).

Meanwhile, three quarters of Irish adults (74%) think it should be up to the parents to decide what's right for their children to eat and drink. Looking at this by gender, both males and females appear to be of equal agreement.

3 out of 4 Irish adults (74%) also think it is okay for children to have sugar, but in moderation. Slightly more females (76%) were of this opinion compared to males (73%) while there appears to be almost equal agreement between respondents with children (73%) and without children (75%).

Three fifths of Irish adults agree that supermarkets should not ban sugary foods when they still sell other unhealthy products. Both males and females are of equal agreement here while those with children are significantly more likely to agree than those without.
