Rational sugar consumption. “Sweet Balance” campaign
The “Sweet Balance” campaign, prepared by the Association of Sugar Producers in Poland, has been developed to show the society what sugar really is, what its role in our body is, and to overcome damaging stereotypes that have grown up around this topic.
Throughout the years, sugar has become a synonym of all that is unhealthy in our daily diet. Therefore, our aim is to make the sceptics aware that products containing sugar can be a part of a healthy and balanced menu, and “being fit” does not have to be associated with sacrifices and giving sweet treats up completely. Sugar does not mean unhealthy carbonated drinks and snacks, but, first of all, a source of energy that we need in our daily tasks and a taste that is the only one known since our birth.
