Sugar Smart App Tells You How Much Sugar Your Child Consumes

sugar smartThe Change4Life healthy eating campaign in the United Kingdom has released a free app that scans the barcodes of food and beverages and then tells you how much sugar the products have in them.  This app is called Sugar Smart, and is a way to help decrease the amount of tooth decay in children.

The recommended daily maximum sugar intake for children is between 19 to 30 grams. Many foods and drinks that our children consume have much more than this in one product alone!

The app will help parents to see what their children are consuming that contains the most sugar so they can make better choices for them. It also gives hints and tips on how to cut down on sugar.
