The Society are supporting ‘Fizz Free February’ will you be doing your bit. Recent evidence has shown that our children are consuming far to much sugar – the average 10 year old is said to have consumed 18 years worth of sugar (Gov, 2019). The Health Minister in Wales has announced that they will look to ‘Healthy Eating: Healthy Wales’, PHE have promoted the Change4life campaign and great work is noted in Scotland and Ireland as healthy diets and dietary goals and ambitions are a key focus.
Much of our sugar can be seen as being consumed through ‘fizzy drinks’ and predominantly in school aged children – can you help save a smile?
