  • The introduction of a sugar tax on soft drinks would have clear benefits to the oral health of children between 11 and 18 years old.
  • Tighter regulation around price, availability and marketing of sports drinks to children will safeguard their general and dental health.
  • Oral health should be tackled in the same breath as overall health since it affects children’s overall well-being, confidence, mental health and life chances.
