Paul Lucas, health minister from Queensland has said that it was just about time that they start to create a national movement to reduce the amounts of fat, sugar, salt and energy in all fast foods available in the country.
The minister plans to move his proposal higher up to the Ministerial Council meeting today in Adelaide with a hope to add some more support for a plan which he hopes will prove to be very helpful in handling the obesity problem in Australia.
Apart from this he is also requesting other health ministers from the country to say yes to the standards for the detailed description of the nutritional information on every product package along with a mention on the menu boards.
As many as 1.6 billion meals were sold off previous year by the fast food restaurants in Australia which conveys that almost 4.5 million Australian citizens visited fast food restaurants every day which simply says all about the bad effect of fast food on the health of the citizens.
