P A G E 4 Toothy tips Limit sugar in childrens diets. Sugar has little nutritional value it has calories but no vitamins, minerals or fibre. Sugars may be listed as: white, brown, raw, icing or castor sugar, treacle, golden syrup, molasses, honey, chocolate, glucose, sucrose, fructose, lactose or maltose. Check the packaging list of ingredients before buying. Choose a breakfast cereal that is low in sugar, fat and salt and high in fibre. Nutritionists recommend that breakfast cereals contain no more than 20grams of sugar per 100grams of cereal or 25grams if fruit is added. This will give kids a good start to the day.
