Make a sugar swap!

Did you know just one or two everyday swaps can really make a difference to how much sugar your child is having, while still keeping them happy?

Children in England are eating an extra 2,800 sugar cubes a year, which is more than double the recommended guidelines. That’s 8 cubes too many each day!

Half of the sugar in our children’s diets comes from sugary drinks, sweets, biscuits, cakes, puddings, sugary breakfast cereals and higher-sugar yoghurts and puddings.

But it’s easy to cut back by swapping from higher- to lower-sugar products.

Take a look at the Change4Life sugar swap video for some ideas or visit the Change 4 Life website:
