Drinks at Snack Time

You may have seen the recent campaign to reduce sugar in all our diets.The guidelines for daily sugar intake are:

Less than 12 months avoid ALL sugars

1-4 years Less than 19gram(4 teaspoons)

4-6 years Max 19gram(4 teaspoons)

Adults 30gram.

So what does this mean in terms of the drinks you provide? The current drink recommendation is Milk or Water. However I know many of you provide juice and if you wish to continue doing so please bear the following in mind.

  • Provide no added sugar juice
  • Check the sugar content before you buy.
  • Dilute to the instructions-Robinsons recommend extra water to added for toddlers.
  • If you provide fresh fruit juice check sugar content and dilute well.(1 part juice to 10 parts water)
