Why Sugar Smart?
The recommended maximum daily amount of added sugar is 7.5 teaspoons for adults and 3 – 6 teaspoons for children. However both children and adults in the UK are consuming up to 3x the recommended amount of added sugar leading to serious health conditions such as obesity and diabetes as well as tooth decay.
Last year we took a survey to find out your views on sugar. See the results!
This information will guide the campaign for the next year.
