Title of project: 
Longitudinal intake of free sugars in ALSPAC children (06-06-2018 - 15:10:10)
Proposal summary: 

The current recommendation is that we should limit our intake of free sugars to provide less than 10% of daily energy intake. This study will investigate free sugars intake in ALSPAC children at ages 18 months, 3.5, 5, 7, 10 & 13 years and determine whether those consuming less than 10% energy from free sugars have a more beneficial nutrient and food group intake than those that consuming more free sugars. Then to investigate if there are differences in obesity levels in relation to free sugars intakes.

Impact of research: 
This is extremely topical and will contribute to an current EFSA review
