Greenwich families given top tips for cutting sugar and fat intake
GREENWICH COUNCIL is encouraging families to change to healthier eating habits by cutting sugar and fat intake for healthier snacks.
National campaign Smart Swaps offers healthy tips including swapping a two-litre fizzy drink – which contain around 52 cubes of sugar – to diet, sugar free or milk or water.
Other simple Smart Swaps include changing to reduced fat cheese, semi-skimmed milk, lower fat butters or spreads and from sugary cereals to low sugar ones.
Greenwich Council cabinet member for health Councillor John Fahy said: “Eating healthily is important for all the family and we’re encouraging families to sign up and choose their swaps by searching for ‘Change4life’ online at home or in our libraries”.
