BE SUGAR-AWARE

CAMPAIGNS & RESOURCES


WHAT SHOULD YOU KNOW?

  • Sugar, saturated fat and salt are all hiding in our food and drink in alarming concentrations.

  • Too much sugar leads to tooth decay and also general health problems such as diabetes and heart disease.

  • Tooth decay causes children pain, leading to sleepless nights, time off school and even hospital admissions for tooth extractions.

  • Even savoury foods are packed with sugar, to enhance flavour or extend shelf-life.

CHANGE 4 LIFE


Public Health England’s Change4Life campaign has a world of resources available to help engage your young pupils in learning about smarter dietary choices. This starts with understanding what a healthy diet looks like and recognising hidden dangers in common foods. By turning the children into investigators and campaigners in their own right, you’ll be giving them the tools and incentive to make changes that will benefit them throughout their lives.
