A bitter pill for most
PHE have called on parents & families to cut sugary drinks from their children’s daily diet, after independent nutrition experts say the country consumes too much sugar, leading to major health consequences.  The SACN final report on carbohydrates & health recommends a significant cut to the amount of sugars people consume as part of their daily calorie intake - halved from 10% to 5%.  The report also recommends that consumption of sugar sweetened drinks is minimised and fibre increased.
