The New Zealand government is planning to impose the fat tax on food. Do you agree or disagree for this issue?

The government is planning to put a tax on unhealthy food to encourage many people on choosing healthier foods and by increase their life expectancy. Moreover, if the government impose it many people have to spend less for their medication treatment. However, if it is impose many people will get confuse which one deserve to be fat taxes and which is not. Many foods could lead to obesity if it is adequately consume for example cheese has a high content of fat. Furthermore, will it be against to the freedom of everyone.
What do you think?
