Bristol Rugby Nutritionist Helps Youngsters Stay Sugar Smart

Bristol Rugby nutritionist Andrew Petts dropped in to the junior members Easter Party at Ashton Gate to help educate the children on the dangers of too much sugar in their diet.

"The message isn't: 'don't eat any sugar or chocolate', because everyone likes a chocolate bar - but it's just making sure the children know of the dangers of having too much sugar," said Petts. 

"It's all about having everything in moderation and that was the message I was trying to put across this afternoon."

The Sugar Smart campaign was launched at Ashton Gate in January at Bristol Rugby and Bristol City fixtures and has since been launched at a Bristol Flyers fixture.

Junior members, season ticket holders and 7s members enjoyed an Easter egg hunt around Ashton Gate and had the chance to meet some special Bristol Sport guests.
