What’s On: That Sugar Film


    Recent research has turned sugar from simple sweet treat to a bitter villain when it comes to our health and to raise awareness of the problems it causes, UrbanExplorer is inviting families to an educational screening this weekend.

    Families with children aged eight plus are invited to see a screening of ‘That Sugar Film’, a documentary about one man’s journey to finding out the real truth about sugar as he investigates foods we consider ‘healthy’ today. The viewing will be held at the Royal Geographical Society in Kensington on Saturday 7 November and will be an attempt to educate children on how much damage the sweet stuff can do, changing the way they think about food.

    The screening will be followed by a Q&A and discussion with a panel of doctors, nutritionists and healthy eating experts. These include BBC food presenter and cook Merrilees Parker, nutritionist duo the Hemsley sisters, founder of ‘Wild Nutrition’ Henrietta Norton and Dr Aseem Malhotra, a cardiologist and part of the ‘Action on Sugar’ anti-sugar campaign. The viewing is the second of UrbanExplorer’s on-going ‘Smart Thinking For Kids’ Series of events.

    Tickets are £20 and includes a treat bag for all guests and a special goody bag for children. Get yours here events.urbanexplorer.com/sugar
