Hidden Sugar

How much sugar is there in your Easter Egg?

With Easter fast approaching we decided to research sugar content in popular Easter eggs. Do you know the amount of sugar contained? Particularly those marketed to children.

Public Health England guidancerecommends that children aged 4 to 10 years should eat no more than the equivalent of 5 to 6 cubes of sugar each day, but data shows children are consuming, on average 13 cubes.

Many children today receive several chocolate eggs from different relatives and friends, and we want you to be aware of what’s in these products and the harm it can have on your teeth and body.

Hidden Sugar is not Sweet to Teeth

                                      
When it comes to sugar, avoiding it may seem pretty easy when you first start. Eliminate the sweets, chocolate, cake and biscuits and you’re done, right?

Wrong!

Unfortunately, manufacturers across the globe are adding sugar to their foods – even foods we consider to be healthy are seemingly packed with sugar.
