Pastries 300x200Food manufacturers in the UK have been urged to comply and commit to the plan to reduce sugar levels in foods. This will go a long way toward fighting children’s obesity and dental problems.

Key takeaways:

  • The Childhood Obesity Plan by government is a way to improve diet through phased reduction in the amount of sugar and sweetness in foods.
  • Action on Sugar supports the targeted 20 percent reduction in sugar which they believe is achievable by the year 2020 if food manufacturers commit to it.
  • The campaign to reduce sugar consumption in children has received widespread support from dentists; they advocate for measures that include effective public education, taxation, and changes to advertising and marketing

The BDA is supporting Action on Sugar’s call for a reduction in the shocking levels of sugar in some popular foods, many of which are aimed at children.

It is one of the first things we notice when we meet someone for the first time, so it’s worth paying as much attention to your smile as you do to other aspects of your appearance.

We are an experienced dental team and are proud to deliver excellence, innovation and results that are second to none, using state of the art techniques in a practice dedicated to your comfort, wellbeing and most importantly, your smile.
