Rip Off Britain, Food: Series 1 Episode 8 of 10

Gloria Hunniford, Angela Rippon and Julia Somerville investigate more stories about what we eat, asking if most of us have a diet too sweet for our own good. They uncover some surprising facts, including how some smoothies have more sugar in them than a can of cola, and they meet the mother angry at the effect such apparently healthy drinks had on her children's teeth.

Plus, as dieticians say some cereals should be eaten for dessert rather than breakfast, what is the best way to way to start your day when it comes to food?

Also, a viewer gets to the bottom of why foods that look a sensible choice because they are low in fat might contain higher levels of sugar instead.
