SUGAR SMART is an ambitious campaign with national support from Sustain and Jamie Oliver’s Food Foundation that aims to help towns, cities, counties and boroughs across the UK to raise awareness and reduce consumption of sugar across all age groups. The campaign aims to promote healthy alternatives and remove or reduce unhealthy food and drink, particularly targeting those high in sugar. It builds on the pioneering work of Brighton’s Sugar Smart City.
Experience shows that commitment from organisations and businesses can help motivate real change in different settings at a local level and across the country.
