Children’s sugar intake exceeding recommended limits

9th January 2019

It is said that children consume around 8 sugar cubes a day!!!

Therefore it is no surprise that children in the UK exceed the maximum recommended sugar intake for an 18-year-old by the time they are 10, according to experts. This is based on their total sugar consumption from the age of two, says Public Health England (PHE).

The recommended daily maximum of sugar for children aged four to six is five cubes or 19g. For children aged seven to 10 this rises to six cubes (24g) and up to seven cubes (30g) for those aged 11 and over. Now PHE are asking that a pudding tax is to be considered if companies do not reduce the amount of sugar in their products.
