Rethink before you drink display
Most people are aware that many foods contain large amounts of sugar which can lead to tooth decay, weight gain, type 2 diabetes, heart disease and even some cancers. This display will help you to raise the awareness around the sugar content in many popular drinks.
Hydration is really important, the aim of this display is to help parents, carers and the general public make healthier choices. This display has been recently updated, in response to the Soft Drinks Industry Levy which came into effect in April 2018. The Soft Drinks Levy is one part of the government’s plan to tackle childhood obesity.
Choose the drinks which are most relevant to your area of work, this will enable you to design your own bespoke display. Sugar spoons have been added to give a visual representation of sugar content. However, the sugar content of each item has been included in grams to enable you to weigh out the sugar accurately should you wish to ADD the sugar in small plastic bags to the display.
