Sugar In Our Diets

On Thursday 28th January, Adrian Brereton, a former participant on Operation Transformation, spoke to all the children in Scoil Bhríde Primary School. Adrian demonstrated how much sugar can be found in everyday food items. We would like to thank Adrian for taking the time to demonstrate this important healthy eating lesson to all the children. The children loved estimating and measuring the sugar!
