A two-year campaign to reduce excessive sugar consumption has been launched by B&NES Council. The aim is to raise awareness of hidden sugars in everyday foods and to improve the availability and promotion of low-sugar food and drink in targeted settings.
Interested organisations are invited to register on the Sugar Smart website www.sugarsmart/org.uk and to take action on sugar:
Increase the availability of healthy food choices
Stop promotions of sugary foods
Make tap water freely available
Run a Sugar Smart quiz
Display information on fridges and vending machines showing the amount of sugar in drinks.
A range of posters, leaflets and menu/window stickers is available.
