Sugar hit

Sugar hits the headlines again, an app devised to help parents monitor how much sugar their child has each day. Do we need an app for that? How can you be sure you have monitored every little bit? Surely food labels do the job and this is just another reliance on technology rather than our own ability to make a sensible judgement?

The BBC ran a piece on it this morning which you can read here – if nothing else it includes the daily amount of sugar considered acceptable, which in itself should help us all monitor our own intake with or without the help of an app.
