The above product mentions no artificial sweeteners but contains approx 27g of sugar per bottle. This is more sugar than some soft drinks.

The sugar shown in the measuring cup is what the 250ml bottle contains. Would you serve this sugar to a three year old? As a result of discussions within parent groups, we found that more and more reactions to sugar are being noticed in children after consuming products such as this dairy product.
