Sugar awareness in children

24th August 2017 by

James, Richard and Mark are competing in their first Tough Mudder on 16th September- that’s 12 miles of mud and obstacles!!!

They are working with Jamie Oliver’s team at Sugar Smart to help raise awareness of the perils of a high sugar intake. The funds raised will help deliver a sugar awareness pack to every primary school child in the the City of London. It will contain a toothbrush, toothpaste, stickers and activity pack for the children as well as a lesson plan to help start the sugar debate with pupils.

Extracting decayed teeth is the most common reason children are given a general anaesthetic in the UK and has increased by more than 24% in the last 10 years.

While every day we hear of a decline in the incidence of most diseases, this is not the case for tooth decay in children.

There is a problem out there. Help us get the activity pack out to the schools around here, and make a difference.
