Dob in your family’s Sugar Bandit.
You might be doing the best you can to raise your children with less sugar but someone is lurking in the background to tempt them with a ‘treat’.
I regularly hear this from parents trying to set the example at home but the children spend time with others and the good example comes unstuck.
It can be other members of the family in the house, grandparents are often shockers or the extended family. Then there is the school, kids parties and sporting functions. The amount of lollies at little athletics and football (all codes, so as not to offend anyone ) or like events can be disastrous.
Here is your chance to ‘Dob in your family’s Sugar Bandit.’
Poor dental hygiene results in dental caries (holes in your teeth) and gingivitis (inflamed gums). All of this sets you up for a lifetime of problems.
Sugar consumption is implicated in this and particularly the “frequency of that sugar consumption was far more important in influencing dental caries than the amount.”
This is a recent campaign fro the Australian Dental Association. The dentists have been campaigning against sugar for a long time.
