Sugar Awareness Week might be over, but that doesn’t mean you can revert back to old habits. If you’re concerned about the amount of sugar in your family’s diet, then here are a few ways to help you cut down and have a healthier 2020.
There are lots of different ways that sugar can be listed on food labels – labels these days have a colour coded system so it is easier to spot foods that are lower in sugar, salt and fat, but for those of you who want to be more aware of hidden sugars, here are a selection of the names to look out for.
According to the NHS, the UK eats far more than the recommended allowance of sugar. The stats show that each individual in the UK is eating on average 140 teaspoons of sugar a week. That’s ridiculous! They say that sugar shouldn’t make up more than 5% of the energy you get from food every day, but as sugar hides in many different forms, it can be hard to keep track of how much is in our diets. Many ingredient lists have different names for sugars too, but that doesn’t mean it is impossible to cut down.
SUCROSE, GLUCOSE, FRUCTOSE, MALTOSE, MOLASSES, HYDROLYSED STARCH, CORN SYRUP, HONEY, INVERTED SUGAR, FRUIT PUREES AND JUICES.
BREAKFAST Many breakfast cereals are high in sugar, even those marketed towards families and especially those that claim to be healthy such as granola. There are a few that are naturally sugar free or low in sugar, such as plain porridge, plain wholewheat biscuits, like Weetabix, or plain shredded cereals, like Shreddies. By making changes to your breakfast you can cut up to 70g of sugar out of your diet a week! We know that having plain porridge or plain
You’ll find that many of your favourite foods, even those marketed as being healthy will have at least one of those ingredients listed, so here are some suggestions of swaps you can make during the day to reduce the sugar intake of you and your family.

SNACKS This is where the ma jority of sugars can be found, of cours e we know that chocolates, sweets, biscuits and cakes are all high in sugar as are cereal bars and dried fruit. You do n’t have to give up on your favourite sn acks – but eating less of them will de finitely help. You can also swap to smaller packs and eating unsalted nuts, unsa lted rice cakes, oatcakes, plain popc orn or malt loaf.
DESSERTS If you’re the kind of family that has dessert after every meal, why not try lim iting it to only a few times a week? That way you can enjoy your favourites without having to cut out desserts completely. There are a few tasty alternatives which have less sugar, suc h as fruit cocktails, low fat yogurts or rice pud ding. You can also make a game out of choosing desserts by creating a shortlis t while in the supermarket and then com paring the labels and getting the one that has the least amount of sugar. That way you can also help get the rest of the family more clued up about what is in their food too.

Mother’s Day is coming! We have a couple of weeks to prepare, but Mother’s Day will be here sooner than you think – this year, the big day is 22nd March and because we appreciate all the mums out there, we thought we’d give you a few suggestions of how to show how much you care. When it comes to Mother’s Day, you don’t have to splash out, you might want to get the mums in your life an extravagant present to show your appreciation, but that isn’t always possible, so here are a few options that you can do to treat your mum without exceeding your budget.
Pamper her This can be as simple as making her lunch or giving her a nice foot rub! Alternatively, surprise her with a trip to your local spa.
Go for a family trip Again, this doesn’t have to cost the earth, go out for a walk somewhere picturesque, maybe a trip to the coast or her favourite place.
Invite some of her friends over for a mum party! Give mum a chance to let her hair down by inviting over a couple of her friends and providing drinks and nibbles. This gives the mums a chance to catch up and also gives dad or other family members the chance to spend time with the kids!
Make a slide show or video Get together with your siblings (if you have any) and create a show that will make her laugh, cry, and want to hug the bunch of you.
Provide housecleaning Your mum spent enough time pushing a vacuum and mopping up your messes, so show her some love by cleaning her house.
Personalise Put together a collage of photos from the past or make a mug with her nearest and dearest on.
This Mother’s Day why not make sure that mum takes some time for herself and really show your appreciation of all the work that she does! And mums, don’t forget, whether you’re a step mum, a biological mum, adoptive mum, grandmother or auntie – you’re fabulous and you’re doing an amazing job – thank you!
Can you colour in Floss so she's ready for a
Mother's Day party?
Can you help save the insects? A report published in November 2019 has shown that the insect population of Great Britain has drastically declined in recent years and that this is having a huge impact on other wildlife, including bats, fish and birds. According to the report, it isn’t just bees that are in trouble, but a great many insects. It has been found that the main causes of this decline has included habitat loss and the use of pesticides. Because of this, the Wildlife Trust is campaigning for the government to issue a new Environment Bill to help reverse this decline. What can we do to help the insects? If you have a garden, there are lots of things you can do to help provide a safe habitat for insects. Firstly, don’t use any pesticides on your garden plants – this can be tough, especially for those of you who want to grow roses and other flowers, but by leaving them to grow naturally, you can attract a whole range of bugs, including ladybirds and lacewings which will get rid of the problem of aphids (they’re the ones that eat flowers!) You could also make a compost heap – this is a good way of helping your garden grow but it will also provide a good home for insects! Similarly, you could build a log pile, if you bury the bottom part of the pile, you’ll find that plenty of insects come to live there. Make a bug hotel – not only are these a great way to encourage insects to live in your garden but they’re fun for the whole family to build! You can either create your own or you can buy kits from garden centres which will offer step by step instructions. These are a great way for the kids to learn more about the natural world.
Have you got a bug hotel? Send us your suggestions for building the perfect bug hotel and together we can work towards helping save the insects! @ukfamilymatters ukfamilymatters |

ECO AWARD NOMINATION FOR LONGWELL GREEN Longwell Green are honoured to have been shortlisted for an Eco Award. The school was visited by one of the judges from the upcoming Bath and West Show during last term, as being shortlisted means that they can potentially represent the county at the show as a school who has been providing pupils with education in all things eco. Each of the six featured counties in the Bath and West Show area will have a school presenting at the upcoming show, with a winner being announced at the show, so even to have been selected to get to this stage is something impressive indeed. This demonstrates how much the school does to raise awareness of ecological issues, there are several projects running to help the pupils learn more about the environment, including having an Eco Council, growing crops, plants and trees and managing eco systems. Everyone at the school is now eagerly awaiting the outcome of the judging – good luck!
SALTFORD’S THEATRE TRIP All of Saltford Primary School’s Key Stage 2 classes visit the panto at Theatre Royal in Bath every year and all of the Foundations Stage and Key Stage 1 classes enjoy a visit from a puppet theatre, Tallulah Swirls, where they see a show which is quite interactive and then they get the chance to see the puppets close up and ask questions in their own classrooms. The children thoroughly enjoyed ‘Beauty and the Beast’ at the Bath Theatre Royal. As always, Jon Monie was hilarious as Louis la Plonk, along with Nick Wilton who once again played a hilarious Dame. Wendi Peters from Eastenders played good Fairy Bon Bon and all the acting, singing and dancing were performed to a very high standard. Everyone agreed that it was a really entertaining show.
SALTFORD PROVIDE DIGITAL HELP IN THE COMMUNITY Saltford Primary School’s digital leaders headed to Saltford Hall recently as part of their regular trips to help villagers with technology. Digital leaders support ICT and computing across the school and in the community. They support the school by assisting staff with setting up for computing lessons, using multimedia in assemblies and leading online safety discussions among pupils. Pupils who may be worried about their online safety know they can always talk to a digital leader if they need advice. Digital leaders enjoy visits to local community sessions where they support older people with their technology. Recently, Miss Hansford took 5 Digital Leaders to Saltford Hall to help members of the local community with any problems they had with their iPads, phones and laptops. Poppy and Ciaran, from Class JG, helped various people with issues such as setting up a new phone, attaching photos to an email and linking an email account to a phone. They both really enjoyed sharing their skills.
CONGRATULATIONS TO BARRS COURT STUDENTS A huge congratulations is in order for Issa, Kano and Shantae-Eve from Barrs Court Primary School. Issa and Kano were presented with a STEM Award last term, which was the first time that the award had been given to primary children in South Gloucestershire! Well done! Shantae-Eve took part in the National Finals and was selected for the GB Development Squad for British Gymnastics, a forerunner for being selected for the Olympics! This is an amazing achievement. Well done and good luck for the future!

TALLULAH SWIRLS COMES TO SALTFORD On Tuesday, 14th January, the children from EYFS and KS1 welcomed Amy from 'Tallulah Swirls' and her exciting puppet show 'When Eggy Met Peggy.' The show was loosely based on the story of 'The Princess and the Pea' and introduced the children to Eggy, friend of the tragic Humpty Dumpty, and Peggy the pea and their quest to achieve their destiny of becoming a wonderful omelette together. The children were enthralled by the brilliant handmade puppets and the quirky, comic story and were a great audience, getting in the spirit by dressing up in wonderful costumes and participating in the show. In the afternoon, Amy visited each class following the performance and the children had the opportunity to ask questions and get up close to the puppets and props. Thank you to Amy for such an engaging and inspiring
day. As one Year 2 child said: 'This was the best show I've seen...and I've seen a LOT!' Thank you to Miss Davis for organising this special activity for the children and to all the FS/KS1 staff for helping on the day.
