Hello! So yesterday I appeared live on BBC Breakfast to talk all about sugar (do I talk about anything else?!) and it occurred to me that I haven’t as yet posted my recent T.V appearances on my blog for you to see; so here they are!
P.S You can see all of my latest T.V appearance [here] on my YouTube channel!
BBC BREAKFAST – JUNE 2018
Yesterday I was speaking about the survey from Public Health England which reported (shockingly) that children in England have already consumed an entire year’s worth of sugar in just 6 months. I’ve popped the video clip down below but if you want to read more about my thoughts (including the things I didn’t get to say!) make sure to check out the description box of the video.
Tips to reduce your children’s sugar intake from Change4Life:
- Swap cola and juice for plain water and low fat milk
- Swap from sugary cereals to plain cereal and porridge
- Swap sugary yoghurts for plain yoghurt with banana
- Swap biscuits to cream cheese and apple slices on rice cakes
- Swap from chocolate mousse to sugar free jelly
BBC ONE RIP-OFF BRITAIN – MAY 2018
Last month I appeared on Rip-Off Britain to talk all about Coconut Water; and specifically, the sugar in it (!).
Coconut water consists of naturally occurring sugars, sometimes added sugar, as well as small amounts of naturally occurring vitamin C and potassium. However, there’s double the amount of vitamin C in a glass of orange juice! In my opinion, coconut water is NOT as good as water for day to day hydration, as water is sugar free as well as being much cheaper, but you could argue that if you’re having a no added sugar variety of coconut water then it’s much better than drinking a full sugar fizzy drink. Ideally we should be having at least 8 x 200ml glasses of fluid a day to stay hydrated.
