Sugar Smart UK

We are facing a huge obesity crisis. All over the UK people are being diagnosed with diet related diseases.

This includes 4 million with type 2 diabetes and an increase in heart attacks, strokes and diet related cancer. The cost to the NHS is crippling and estimated to be over £9 billion just treating type 2 diabetes.

Ultimately we need government action, but everyone can play a role.

Sugar Smart is a campaign by food charity Sustain working with councils, businesses, institutions and other sectors to help reduce overconsumption of sugar in their local areas. Sugar Smart was the feature campaign of the Sustainable Food Cities Network in 2017-2018.

Sugar Smart supports local campaigns to take on a cross-sector approach to transform their food environment and raise public awareness of the impacts of consuming too much sugar. We can help you to join the growing number of those going Sugar Smart.
