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 UK is a campaign involving many partners, with Sustain as the Sustainable Food Cities lead. It will support local campaigns working with organisations and businesses to take action to reduce the amount of sugar and raise awareness of the impact of sugar on our health. It will be the feature campaign of Sustainable Food Cities until mid-2018.
From running a local campaign, to changing what you do in your organisation or business, we can help you to join the growing numbers of those going Sugar Smart.
We are offering a number of grants to local food partnerships to support them in fully taking part in our campaigns. Read more
