  • Sugar in Children's Diets

    16th November 2015 - Crookesbroom Primary Academy
    Too much sugar means extra calories that can lead to stored fat in the body which can cause diseases like heart disease, some cancers and type 2 diabetes.
     
    Around a quarter of the added sugar in children’s diets comes from sugary drinks. That’s why the new advice is that sugary drinks have no place in a child’s daily diet. Swap to water; lower-fat milks; sugar free, diet and no added sugar drinks instead. Eating too much sugar can also cause  tooth decay.
