Philips Sonicare

Passionate advocates for good oral healthcare for Australians and our children, Philips Sonicare have joined forces with Life Education to remind Australia – that it's never too early or too late to start looking after your oral health. 

How Much Sugar is Hiding in Your Trolley?

Did you know that 47.8% of adults in Australia are consume too much sugar? How much is too much? According to the World Health Organization, adults should limit their sugar intake to 6 teaspoons (~24 g) each day. Unfortunately, the average Australian consumes 14 teaspoons of sugar a day. 

According to Philips' Dental Professional Relations Manager, Hera Dimitriadis, the problem is the hidden sugars in foods and drinks we consume.

One 600ml bottle of soft drink contains 16 teaspoons of sugar – this is over twice the recommended daily sugar intake for adults!
