Sugar Awareness week
Each year ‘Action on Sugar’ organise a national Sugar Awareness Week to help raise awareness of the damaging effect of too much sugars in our diet.
Sugars can be an unnecessary and unhealthy source of calories, and health experts are becoming ever more concerned about the issues associated directly with excessive sugar consumption. The incidence of obesity and type 2 diabetes, along with the potentially serious consequences of these diseases, is rapidly increasing.
There are a number of different types of sugar in the diet, from naturally occurring, free sugars, fruit juices and smoothies. Sometimes it’s difficult to gauge how much we are actually consuming.
