Oxford's Great Sugar Debate

Many of us are having too much sugar and it’s bad for our health. The recommended daily intake of free sugar* is a maximum of 7 teaspoons for adults and 5-6 teaspoons for children.
*Free Sugar is sugar added to food by the manufacturer or at home, as well as sugar naturally present in honey, syrups and fruit juices. It does not include sugar naturally present in milk, whole fruit and vegetables.
One soft drink may be two to three times this amount – a 330ml can of soft drink may contain 9 teaspoons of sugar and a 500ml bottle of soft drink may contain 13 teaspoons of sugar.
