Starting the Year with Healthy Eating

Starting the Year with Healthy Eating

Children in England are eating nearly three times the recommended amount of sugar. Too much sugar is bad for their health.  Surprisingly, half the sugar they consume comes from snacks and sugary drinks.

As a way to help parents reduce children’s sugar intake, Change4Life is launching a new campaign to help families choose healthier snacks.  The campaign will help parents take action by introducing a new simple tip – ‘Look for 100 calorie snacks, two a day max’.  To find out more, visit

Also, take a look of our resources and get inspiration to start the year with healthy eating.
