Shock new figures reveal the scary amount of sugar in your kids yoghurts

Experts from across public health teams have sent warnings out to parents after finding yoghurts could contain up to FIVE sugar cubes in one serving.

Medics say some yoghurts could send children over their daily sugar limit in just one serving.

NHS guidelines say children aged between four and six should have no more than 19g or five cubes of free sugar (sugar not 'locked in' naturally to products) a day, while seven-to-10-year-olds should have no more than six cubes.

Public Health Liverpool first brought it to national attention and is to highlight its findings with a media campaign across health centres, dentists' surgeries, children's centres and hospitals over the coming months.

Dr Sandra Davies, Liverpool's director of public health, said: "Tackling sugar in diets is a real priority for us because we know that people simply don't realise how much they are consuming.

"If we are to stand any chance of tackling this ticking time bomb, we must give parents as much information as possible so they can make informed decisions.
