Sugar Smart is an ambitious campaign 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.
Sugar Smart is a joint campaign with the Jamie Oliver Food Foundation and the food charity Sustain, and aims to work with any food businesses, schools, children's groups and other organisations who wish to make a pledge to help people become sugar smart and make healthier, less sugary choices more accessible.
