They explained the bad ingredients in foods that cause tooth decay.
Julie demonstrated this by weighing out bags of sugar to show the sugar content in items such as sweets (Haribo’s, Skittles and Mars bars etc).
They continued to do this for liquids such as chocolate milkshake, Coca-Cola and Lucozade etc. They discussed healthy snack options such as drinking water, eating carrot sticks, peppers, vegetables and fruit. To keep sugary drinks to meal times and only as a treat.
