Grown-ups time to get Sugar Smart

Friday, 25 January 2019

Too much sugar is bad for children's health as it can lead to the build-up of harmful fat on the inside that we can't see. This fat can cause weight gain and serious diseases like type 2 diabetes, which people are getting younger than ever before. Having too much sugar can also cause painful tooth decay, and every ten minutes, a child in England has a tooth removed.

When your child brings home their change for life booklet, check out the back page for some useful information, a 'sugar swaps' chart you can put on your fridge, and some tasty recipes.
