Tesco to end checkout sweets in 'healthy choice' move

SweetsTesco is to stop sweets and chocolates being sold at checkouts at its smaller stores in the UK in an effort to help customers make healthier choices.

The supermarket giant said it would take away confectionery from near its tills by the end of the year after conducting research into the issue.
Larger Tesco stores stopped selling sweets at checkouts 20 years ago.
Public Health Minister Jane Ellison welcomed the move saying it would help tackle obesity and ill health.

Tesco says its research found about two-thirds of customers questioned said removing confectionery from checkouts would help them make healthier choices........
