Public Health England says four to six year olds should have up to 19g a day.

Those aged seven to ten should only eat 24g and adults less than 30g.

A Maltesers Crunchy Egg (496g) and its treats contain 272g of sugar.

A third of under-15s are overweight or obese.

The National Obesity Forum said: “These eggs are a real risk to health.”

The British Obesity Society said consumption advice on the products was aimed at male adults.
