Merton Public Health supports new Change4Life campaign on sugar

11/01/2019

Change4Life have launched their new 2019 campaign, to help children and families cut back on sugar. Children in England are having 2800 more sugar cubes than they should each year, and this is taking its toll on the health of our younger population. As a result, more and more children are becoming prone to tooth decay, diabetes and obesity.

 

Change4Life is showing families how easy it is to cut back on sugar by making a few simple swaps to their everyday food and drinks. Several partners will also be highlighting healthier options in store and in their own advertising and many will be using a new Change4Life ‘good choice’ badge to make it even easier for families to make healthier choices.

 

Make a swap next time you shop! Sign up to Change4Life today for great prizes, easy tips and meal ideas. Also download the Change4Life smartphone app to be able to scan barcodes in the supermarket for an accurate reading on their sugar, salt, fat and calorie content.
