New Change4Life snacking campaign video now available

By February 6, 2018 No Comments

We have now added a new video to promote the new Change4Life snacking campaign to our Envisage Media library.

This new video encourages parents to ‘look for 100-calorie snacks, two a day max’ to cut children’s sugar intake. Around half of a child’s sugar intake comes from unhealthy snacks and sugary drinks. This can lead to obesity and dental decay.

On average, children are eating at least 3 unhealthy snacks and sugary drinks a day, with around a third consuming 4 or more. This means that children are consuming around three times more sugar than is recommended.

A child’s sugar intake currently comes from:

  • almost 400 biscuits
  • more than 120 cakes, buns and pastries
  • around 100 portions of sweets
  • nearly 70 of both chocolate bars and ice creams
  • all washed down with over 150 juice drink pouches and cans of fizzy drink

Selected supermarkets are supporting the campaign and parents can get money-off vouchers from Change4Life to try healthier snack options.
