Festival of Football
The Oral Health Promotion team attended this weekend event in South Cave. Unfortunately it rained nearly all day. However this didn't stop the team from raising awareness of the sugar contents of some popular energy and sports drinks with the families who braved the bad weather. Despite the conditions, this event was very well attended and many people went away with appropriate oral health freebies and a better understanding of sugar / acidic levels of many familiar drinks.
