Half of children’s sugar intake – currently around seven sugar cubes a day – comes from unhealthy snacks and sugary drinks, which can lead to obesity and tooth decay. A new Change4Life campaign aims to promote healthier snacks and give families easy choices to encourage their children to reduce the amount of sugar in their diets.
While today’s news stories often focus around the financial and demand pressures on the NHS and social services, there’s a silent workforce out there that is more than pulling its weight, and that is also feeling the strain.
Families in Devon will get tips for healthier snacking when the Change4Life roadshow comes to Newton Abbot Tesco on Thursday 18 January
