Summary: The giant Supermarket, Tesco, in UK, had decided to remove all the sweets from in front of the checkouts from end of 2014. This decision was affected by the customer survey, for the survey result shows that the customers do not want to be tempted by sugary snacks. This decision was welcomed by the Britain’s Public Health Minister and moreover, the reaction from the parenting website was also positive. The ban of candy from chechouts will reduce obesity and ill-health of the customers.
Opinion: I personally support Tesco’s decision to get rid of sweets from the checkouts. I am one of the customers who end up picking up sweets in front of the checkouts while waiting on the line. Therefore, Tesco did sacrifice itself for the people’s health. It wouldn’t have been easy since the fortune that sweets in front of the checkouts would not be negligible. As supermarkets that have such health thoughts increase, the obesity problem would be solved, yet most of the supermarkets still prefer to earn money than to protect our health.
