Sugar: Do You Know How Much Sugar Is In These Popular Kid's Snacks?

🍪🍭🍫🍪🍭🍫

We all know we eat too much sugar.

In modern supermarket foods, the white stuff isn’t only packed into biscuits and sweets, but lots of readymade meals, pasta sauces, cereals and other things with ‘hidden’ sugars. 

It is important to know what’s in your food, so you don’t get fooled into buying ‘healthy’ snacks that have as much sugar (or sometimes even more) than a chocolate bar.

The NHS recommends the following guidelines for your children’s daily allowance:

  • 19 grams for children aged 4-6 years.
  • 24 grams for children aged 7-10 years.

  • 30 grams (roughly seven cubes) for children aged 11 and older.

But do you know how much sugar is the in snacks you feed your children and are you always picking the healthiest option?
