MP's are calling for a ban on certain cereals which contain salt.

I've usually got a lot of time for Andy Burnham as he seems quite a sensible and decent guy but he's taken leave of his senses here.
We've quite enough nannying as it is in this country, why can't they just leave people alone. Evil or Very Mad

My thoughts exactly Toggy! They just want to blame everything on the state and it's about time people did things for themselves. A lot of food is tasteless enough without them taking anything else out!

Salt in Frosties?!? Oh, so that's why Frosties taste so nice! I thought it was all that sugar coating!

But c'mon Mark, where in that article is the salt content of Frosties mentioned?

And you say MPs calling for a ban when Burnham is quoted in the article saying 'I'm not talking about banning anything.....'

Mark. Sounds like you are preparing a report for the Daily Mail.....

Actually there could well be too much salt in Frosties John!

A few years back, probably when they first asked manufacturers to cut back, I noticed Sainsburys Bran Flakes which I'd bought for a long time began to taste like cardboard (don't tell me that they do anyway!) and stopped buying them, I found they had less salt than other own brands and Kelloggs. Took a while to find a better one, Tesco's, and the amount of sugar varies as well. Kelloggs are the sweetest by far, too sweet in fact.
