I thought you may all be interested in a new project set up by James Goolnik:
As you know the number one reason 5-9 year olds are admitted to hospital in the UK is from Tooth decay. Shocking in this day and age.
As a parent I am fed up of fending off the sugar pushed to them. Everyone needs recognition but it doesn’t need to be food or sugar to motivate people.
There must be a better way. I have put together a team of Dentists, Doctors, Nutritionists and Psychologists to set up a non-profit called Rewards Project We aim to transform the way we reward our children so this behaviour is not modelled into adulthood.
I would love for you to ask your amazing community on Hygienist.co.uk to get involved:
- a) Share the message on social media and follow us rewardsproject.org
- b) Take the FREE sugar quiz at orgto see how much sugar you are eating.
- c) If they have children or have any connections with schools or nurseries ask them to complete the Rewards Review https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/schoolrewards
thanks very much
