Interesting Guardian piece about how we eat too much sugar - kids are eating as much as nineteenth century factory workers working fourteen hours a day.

It's the low fat trade off: we've all (some) started eating low-fat, but the trade off for processed food is that they have more sugar. If that fat goes, it has to be replaced by something.

What I didn't know is that fruti is being bred to be blander and sweeter, although I guess I should have guessed, especially since the arrival of the Pink Lady apple, which is even sweeter than Golden Delicious, and that's pretty sweet.
