Why should the government tell us what to eat?
Our health system bears the costs when poor diet makes us unwell, so the taxpayer has skin in this game. Charging extra on unhealthy food can help pay for those costs, and offering rebates on healthy food makes it easier for people to make healthy eating choices. It's good for our health, as well as our national health budget.
