In response to a request from Mr Taylor, the World Health Organisation provided evidence on the importance of reducing added sugars and also on marketing, explaining that all products that function as breastmilk substitutes, including any milk products (liquid or powdered) that are marketed for young children (including follow-up formula and growing-up milks) are covered by the International Code.
