Sugar – Lets get smart – get the App

  • Kids with lollies

We are urging our good parents and patients to sign up for a free app which tells you the sugar content of food and drink.

It’s really easy to use and makes hunting for hidden sugar fun!  the “sugar smart app”, from Public Health England (PHE), works by scanning barcodes and revealing total sugar in cubes or grams. every dentist is  hoping it will provide valuable information to help families combat tooth decay, obesity and type two diabetes and encourage everyone to choose healthier alternatives.

Did you know that on average children aged four to ten years old are consuming 22kg of added sugar a year. That’s about 5,500 sugar cubes – more than the weight of an average five-year-old child. The app has been developed to raise awareness of how much sugar is contained in everyday food and drink.
