A Call to Action for Schools and Early Years

This article has been brought to you by Slough Borough Council's Public Health Programme Officer, Timothy Howells, for the attention of Schools and Early Years in Slough.

According to new figures from Public Health England (PHE), the average UK child exceeds the recommended level of sugar intake for an 18-year-old by the age of 10. The report also highlights how children, on average, are consuming around eight excess sugar cubes a day (or 2,800 excess sugar cubes a year).

The Slough Healthy Smiles team are promoting “Fizz Free February”. An opportunity to ditch the fizzy drinks, lose weight, save your teeth and save money!

Please feel free to use the 3 posters below to utilise these in your buildings, to promote on social media and to promote to your students and staff.
