Sugar Smart is launching in Cranbrook! 

If you are passionate about food, nutrition and healthy eating, this event is for you.

We are providing free training to equip volunteers to go out and encourage Sugar Smart action.  High intakes of sugar are having a significant impact on our health and our food environment does not make it easy for individuals to change.  We want to see a healthier food environment in Devon which makes the healthy choice the easy choice. 

This means organisations pledging to take actions such as removing price promotions on sugary foods, providing healthy options, banning advertisements for high sugar foods and raising awareness of sugar.  We are particularly keen to work with leisure centres and hospitals, but want to see action across Devon in all kinds of food outlets and organisations.  This is where we need your help!  Can you encourage some Sugar Smart action in your local area or networks?

Lots of small steps can make one big difference to the health of Devon's residents!
