Lördagsgodis is a Swedish way to limit sweets
In the 1940s, research into the impact of sugar on dental health was carried out in Sweden. As a result of these studies, a number of recommendations were made, among which was the suggestion that children would eat sweets only once a week – even in larger quantities than every day. That’s how Sweet Saturday was created (Lördagsgodis means exactly “Saturday sweets”). The sweets collected throughout the week can only be eaten that day, but from morning to evening, without restrictions. In practice, no one is able to eat so much sweet at once, as a result, they eat quite a reasonable amount. That is why Sweden belongs to countries where children consume the least sugar (about 12% of daily energy demand), while in this respect Poland is to the infamous top (over 20% of demand).
