• Sugar Shocker

CDRC Sugar Display

At the 38th CARICOM Heads of Government Conference one of the main attractions in the meeting area was a ‘sugar display’ constructed by the George Alleyne Chronic Disease Research Centre .

A number of people who saw the display expressed real surprise and concern about the amount of sugar we’re consuming. They included the Prime Minister of Grenada, Dr the Rt Hon. Keith Mitchell, current CARICOM Chair and Dr. the Hon. Timothy Harris, Prime Minister of St Kitts and Nevis and CARICOM’s lead spokesperson on human resource, health and HIV.

This shows exactly how much sugar is in popular foods and drinks, many of which our children enjoy.

It is not pretty viewing…
