We all know that over the festive period we over indulge by eating and drinking too much, often things that we do not have as much of at other times of year. This is way so many people do dry January or detox during the first month of the year.
Within our schools and homes we are careful and promote healthy eating and positive lifestyle choices, but when 'Fizz Free February' came around we could not resist taking part.
Fizz Free February is backed by many Local Authorities, Sugar Smart and the British Dental Association. Fizzy drinks are the largest single source of sugar for children aged 11-18, and they provide an average of 29% of daily sugar intake. Cutting out, or simply reducing, fizzy drinks is an easy way to reduce sugar intake.
