Boy thinking how much is too much opt

Let’s help ourselves, our children, our families and our city eat less sugar – we’re all sweet enough!

We all want our children to grow up happy and healthy. But, eating too much sugar can start having an impact during pregnancy before our children are even born. Throughout childhood and into adulthood if we eat too much sugar this can put us at risk of developing tooth decay and certain health conditions, including obesity, diabetes and high blood pressure.

We want to help you get the facts about sugar and make some simple swaps to keep you, your family and everyone in Sheffield healthy. Sheffield is sweet enough.

“I’ve started checking the labels more often, so I can make sure my son isn’t having too much sugar. It’s still hard when the grandparents come around though!”

Mum to 5-year-old and 2-year-old
