What is SUGAR SMART UK?
SUGAR SMART UK was set up by Sustain and the Jamie Oliver Food Foundation working with councils, businesses, institutions and other sectors to help reduce overconsumption of sugar in their local areas. SUGAR SMART takes a cross-sector approach to transforming local food environments and raising public awareness of the impacts of consuming too much sugar.
What’s the issue?
All of which excess sugar has a direct correlation with; this is why we need your help to raise awareness.
What is Sugar Smart Carlisle?
As you can see, the effect of excess sugars in our diets is causing major adverse health issues. The Sugar Smart Carlisle project aims to raise awareness, highlighting unknown facts about hidden sugar with the goal of providing this vital information to our communities and promoting positive healthier lifestyle choices.
Throughout the delivery of this project our overall aim is to raise awareness and get as many people involved in developing the project. We are looking to work with community groups, schools, sports and leisure centres, restaurants, workplaces and other organisations across the district. We aim to spread the word as far as possible as the project builds.
We are developing Sugar Smart resources (challenges, word searches, quizzes and factsheets) so that people can get invovled in their own community groups, school, club or workplace.
