Always read the label

November 16, 2009

A new report by Which? has warned that so-called healthy snacks designed for children’s lunchboxes are laden with hidden salt and sugar. After analysing the nutritional content of a range of snacks, Which? found that the products promoted as being free from additives are actually packed with sugar. Robinson’s Fruit Shoot orange drink contains 23g of sugar per 200ml bottle, almost five teaspoonfuls. Kellogg’s Frosties Cereal and Milk bars contain seven different sugars, making a 25g bar almost a third sugar. Dairylea Lunchables Ham ‘n’ Cheese crackers contain 1.8g of salt, more than half of the recommended daily allowance for a four to six year old child. Which? is calling for tighter rules on when manufacturers can make health claims – this would prevent sugary, salty foods being promoted as being healthy options due to high fibre or calcium.

Martyn Hocking, editor of Which? magazine, said: “Parents should be able to pick out healthy products for their kids’ lunchboxes, but what you see isn’t always what you get. Some products give the impression of being healthy, but are full of salt and sugar. The best way to beat the lunchbox baddies is by checking the nutrition and ingredient information. We’d also like to see the rules on health and nutrition claims made tougher, so there’s less confusion on the supermarket shelves.”

 “Not on a single page does the food look anything less than delicious, alive and vibrant. With enough ideas to keep a whole family satisfied, Shazzie’s book is a must for those just wanting imaginative ways to get their children’s five-a-day into them, or those looking to follow the raw path.” – Juno.

“I attract more ecstatic beings in my life every day because… now I’m not trying! I’m starting my raw journey with my 2 little princesses and re-awakening the ecstatic ME… the ecstasy starts with ME and then radiates outward… Oh, OK… It’s really because of the raw chocolate 😉 I’m going to have a raw chocolate party!” – Lisa Marie Demarte

“I attract more ecstatic beings in my life every day because I’m a knightess of the ecstatic raw table – lady dancealot!” – Emma Couttie

“I attract more ecstatic beings in my life every day because… I smile all the time and believe in what I’m smiling about :)” Happy Birthday Shazzie! Love life to it’s fullest!” – Stacy

“I attract ecstatic beings into my life because I love myself and everyone. I have evolved (with the help of raw food) from being a sick girl in a wheelchair to an ecstatic walking dancing happy being. My grandfather’s wife (an ecstatic superbeing, by the way) has told me that I remind her of a butterfly.” – Bethany

“I attract more ecstatic beings in my life every day because I am the conscious creator OF my life, and I have made it my loving intention to seek the most rapturous of beings.”  – Jacqueline Graham
