NSPCC Mental Health Advice
Mental illness and thoughts of harm can affect anyone, of any age, of any background, at any time.  Like with physical illnesses, people don’t choose to have a mental health problem. 
It can be difficult to know if a child is suffering as they often keep it to themselves.  The NSPCC can offer advice on how best to support your child. To visit the website for more information click here.

We know kids love sugary things. But too much sugar can lead to serious diseases like type 2 diabetes, which people are getting younger than ever before, and heart disease.

We've got an easy way to cut back on sugar, with lower sugar swaps on the things we eat every day.

That means kids get less sugar, but are still happy!
