As well as being thought provoking for children and adults alike it provides endless opportunities for learning, discussion and even to make long lasting change for the better.

There are surprising amounts of sugar, saturated fat and salt in the everyday food and drinks we enjoy. We might seem fine on the outside, but too much sugar and saturated fat can lead to the build-up of harmful fat on the inside that we can’t see. This fat can cause serious diseases in the future.
