Healthy Drinks!!

Year 5/6 have been shocked this week to discover the amount of sugar in popular drinks.

The recommended DAILY sugar intake for children is as follows:

4-6 years: 5 sugar cubes or 19 grams
7-10 years: 6 sugar cubes or 24 grams
11 years and over: 7 sugar cubes or 30 grams

We discovered that some of the drinks we enjoy have twice that amount in them:

We noticed that on many drink labels it doesn't reveal the true picture and only states what sugar is in half the bottle. Here is an example:

27g per 250ml but the bottle is 500 ml so there is 54g (nearly twice the recommended daily allowance of sugar)

So the message from Year 5/6 is - Think before you drink!

Have a healthy summer holidays - drink lots of water.
