From September onwards Tesco stores in the UK will stop selling cartons and pouches of sugary drinks, meaning no longer can you buy lunchbox sizes of Capri Sun or Ribena.

The decision was made amid concerns over childhood obesity, which seems fair seeing as 33g of sugar in a 330ml pouch of Capri Sun, which is double the amount recommended by the NHS for four to six-year-olds, and almost 10g over the limit for seven to 10-year-olds.

The supermarket chain will continue to sell "no added sugar" versions of the drinks, as well as the larger bottles of the drinks, which are aimed at adults.

Tesco has also stated that it will be reducing the sugar content from its own brand drinks by 5% a year, and has already cut out 4.5 billion calories from its range of drinks.

The decision has, as expected, outraged the internet, and to be fair Twitter actually has a point this time.
