Sugars Threaten Health of Swedish Youngsters
No clear goal, poor co-ordination and a serious risk to children’s health – despite a national health goal set up in 2003.
That’s the damning verdict of Sweden’s healthcare policy for children of school age by the organisations representing the country’s doctors, nurses and dentists.
This comes after a study of 1500 schools, concluding that the youngsters consume too many sweets and sugary soft drinks – leading to obesity, diabetes and asthma.
Radio Sweden discusses this with Eva Nilsson Bågenholm , the head of the Doctor’s Association, Läkareförbundet.
