The World Health Organisation recommends a maximum intake of 6 teaspoons of sugar per day. Did you know that cinemas are selling popcorn which contains around 35 teaspoons of sugar, almost a 600% increase in what you should be having!! There are other snacks you will buy at the cinema which are also high in sugar like ice cream, sweets and fizzy drinks.
Sugar is very much in the spotlight at the moment and is being closely linked as being as harmful as smoking 20 cigarettes a day. The health risks of consuming too much sugar is serious and it is something which should be monitored. Some of the cinemas do display nutritional information so that you know exactly what you are eating before you buy it. If you go to the cinema on a weekly basis and you enjoy these types of snacks, it might be time to limit them and go for better options with less sugar.
