How to tackle sugar dependency / obesity / diabetes? A sugar tax / measures may be needed

Successive governments have failed to address obesity/ growing diabetes diagnosis and a general addiction to sugar that is a health time bomb. Individuals are clearly struggling to address the problem. Is a sugar tax one way of addressing this, with the proceeds going to support the NHS, which is being overwhelmed by this problem?
One view is expressed here:
