Je gewicht in suiker
Je gewicht in suiker: als vervolg op onze post van gisteren, want suikerinname blijkt een hot topic te zijn. Food2Smile is daar blij om want hoe meer we ons bewust worden van wat onze kinderen binnenkrijgen hoe beter.
A new campaign launches today (4 January 2016) encouraging parents to get “Sugar Smart” and take control of their children’s sugar intake.
The Change4Life campaign follows revelations that 4 to 10 year olds consume over 5,500 sugar cubes a year, or around 22kg – the average weight of a 5 year old.
A new Sugar Smart app has been launched to help parents see how much sugar there is in everyday food and drink. The free app works by scanning the barcode of products and revealing the amount of total sugar it contains in cubes and grams.
Change4Life has created an eye-opening short film to warn parents about the health harms of eating and drinking too much sugar, including becoming overweight and tooth decay.
