sugar and childrens health
« on: July 19, 2016, 08:36:25 PM »
Please spare the time to fill out this short questionnaire about children's sugar consumption. https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/96275YF

This anonymous, online survey about children in the UK and their sugar intake. It should only taken 5 minutes.
Children’s sugar intake is a relatively new focus for public health and we would like to know more about what attitudes people in Britain have. Ultimately we want to understand the views of people living in Britain to inform future work in this area and improve the health of the nation.
There are no right or wrong answers! We would be grateful for your honest views.

It's good to see research being done. I think sugar is really bad for children and adults. People forget that fruit is full of sugar too. It may have vitamins but it's still sugar.

Fruit is natural sugar though, and unrefined. It's also accompanied with a good balance of fibre and nutrients if eaten in its natural form. Once you start juicing it you do have to watch out for too much sugar as the fibre is stripped out, it's best to balance this with one piece of fruit with 4 veg when juicing. 

It'd be interesting to see the results of the survey, given the marketing at children and families for snacks and food stuffs that are full of nasties, I suspect it'll be quite frightening :-(

I recently watched a programme on tele called 'Sugar Free Farm' which was very interesting... you may have watched it yourselves... but it has definitely inspired me to be more aware of the things me and my child are eating, and to make a conscious effort not to stack the cupboards full of sugary things... as tempting as it might be aha!
