Consumption of free sugars by secondary school children in the UK lower during snacking periods than at main mealtimes

New research presented at this year's European Congress on Obesity (held online, 10-13 May) reveals that consumption of free sugars (FS) is greater outside of school hours than consumption inside school hours, and that snacking periods are associated with lower FS intake than main mealtimes. The research was conducted by Abigail Stewart and colleagues, Institute of Applied Health Research, University of Birmingham, Birmingham, UK.
