What we feed our children in their early years and during childhood can influence eating habits, health and body weight in later life. A healthy balanced diet with lots of variety is essential to ensure all their nutrient requirements are met.
Change4Life has launched a new campaign to help parents reduce their children’s sugar intake through choosing healthier snacks by encouraging parents to 'Look for 100 calorie snacks, two a day max!'
We’re supporting Change4Life’s snacking campaign to help you identify healthier snacks for children that are less than 100 calories per portion. With 50% of children’s sugar intake coming from unhealthy snacks, it can be challenging to distinguish which snacks are healthy and which aren’t, but through looking for 100-calorie snacks and sticking to 2 per day, we can ensure children have healthier snacking habits and aren’t filling up on sugary foods and drinks.
