Sugar Smart schools
The Devon Sugar Smart team is calling on Devon primary schools to start the new academic year by becoming more Sugar Smart.
Sugar Smart is an ambitious campaign with support from Sustain and Jamie Oliver aiming to help to reduce the amount of sugar we consume.
The Sugar Smart campaign in Devon encourages organisations including schools to take Sugar Smart actions that will highlight the risks to our health from too much sugar and help to create an environment for staff and students to make the healthy choice the easy choice. Schools are well positioned to take relatively small steps that can make a big difference to the health and wellbeing of their staff and students.
Schools can pledge to undertake Sugar Smart actions, which are split into three areas:
- Promoting and providing healthy lunches and snacks
- Encouraging staff and students to drink plenty of water
- Raising awareness of Sugar Smart
"Weeks run from Monday to Sunday. Please note that weeks without communications to schools are ignored and the links will go to the last week where a communication was made in this category."
