Lais Dennis teaches Andover 9th graders about added sugars

On November 20th, 2023, Framingham State University student dietitian Lais Dennis spent time with freshmen students at Andover High School. She taught students about added sugars in our food, the impact that consuming an excessive amount of sugar can have on our health, and worked on their skills reading the nutrition facts label. The students had the chance to learn about the different names sugar can have by looking at different ingredients lists. Lais also educated on how to identify if a product is high or low in added sugars by looking at the percent daily value (%DV).
