In 2022 child respiratory doctors voiced their disapproval of the government’s failure to pay attention to warnings about the dangers associated with selling e-cigarettes in child-friendly packaging featuring names of popular sweet treats. The products, which included flavourings such as banana milkshake and jelly babies, contained 2% nicotine, the highest concentration allowed in the UK. Since then, the UK government is considering imposing a ban on single-use vapes amid growing concerns about their appeal to children and teenagers.
