Do you take sugar?

The safe daily limit for free sugar is:
4 – 6 years old: 5 cubes/teaspoons
7-10 years old: 6 cubes/teaspoons
11+ years: 7 cubes/teaspoons

FREE SUGAR is that which is added to food and drink.
(Intrinsic sugar is that which occurs naturally in fruit, milk etc.)

It is very easy to exceed the safe limits but perhaps an incentive to keep within them is the fact that the World Health Organisation would like sugar to be categorized alongside tobacco, the health risk is that great.
