Five-year-olds are eating four times their daily sugar limit, Peymane Adab says
A study of English schoolchildren found them to be consuming an average 75g of sugar a day - around 19 teaspoons. This is four times the 19g maximum daily intake advised for their age group. Sweet drinks, including cans of pop, fruit juice and smoothies, account for 40 per cent of the daily tally, making them a much bigger source of sugar than cakes, sweets or chocolate. Researcher Peymane Adab, professor of public health at Birmingham University, said that weight for weight, the sugar in fruit juice and smoothies is just as bad for the body as that in soft drinks, and it is wrong to assume they are healthy, just because they contain fruit.
