As of May 9th, McDonald’s launched a “healthy” drink, Fruitizz, for children. But should a healthy drink contain 12 teaspoons of sugar? It gives children one of the recommended five portions of fruit and veg a day, however, a large 500ml cup contains 200 calories and 49 grams of sugar.
Health officials recommend that children get no more than 50 grams of sugar in a DAY. “Food marketing to children negatively influences the dietary choices and the health of society’s most vulnerable citizens.”
