One in three kids in Canterbury (NZ) have rotten teeth

Recent story this month in Canterbury of young kids (as young as 6 years old) needing to have rotten teeth extracted due to high sugar diet. Adults need awareness of the amount of sugars that their kids are consuming. It’s not just the candy and fuzzy drinks that we are all know about when visiting the dentist, and what about those natural and hidden sugars in everyday foods that are not nearly noticed as much as lollies and which can be doing more damage to children’s teeth than we think?
