Attention-grabbing stuff in the Daily Mail today, with the claim that a youngster hanged himself after too many caffeine-rich energy drinks.

Elsewhere in the Mail, news of Diageo feeling the squeeze in the US.

And in contrast to the alarm over energy drinks, some good PR for yoghurt makers – apparently a pot of the dairy gunk each day “could” (i.e. won’t) help mothers lose weight after pregnancy.

The Daily Express, meanwhile, reports on Unilever’s plans to boost sales with increased marketing. The Daily Telegraph has a slightly different take, focusing on the price rises implemented by the group to boost yesterday’s first-quarter results.

The Times goes in-depth on whether the “great British sandwich” still “cuts the mustard”, ahead of the upcoming sandwich awards, the Sammies.

And The Guardian has an interview with Seeds of Change founder Howard-Yana Shapiro, now head of plant science at confectionery giant Mars.
