Last night’s Sunday programme shows the pain sugar causes our kids

Last night’s Sunday programme featured Roby Beaglehole, who is launching a campaign on the impact of sugar, soft drinks in particular. Roby is a dentist who is tired of carrying out expensive and painful operations on little kiddies to remove their teeth. This problem is entirely preventable, and the main cause is the consumption of soft drinks.

Roby helped us design this infographic a while back, 10 shocking facts about soft drinks and teeth. We thought this was an appropriate time to take another look at the facts.
Do you think soft drink manufacturers should pay for the impact they are having on the health of our children?
