This webinar organised by Sustainable Food Cities and Sustain focused on embedding SUGAR SMART actions in local certification and award schemes. A key challenge for local campaigns is ensuring that sugar reduction education and reduction of sugary food and drink on offer becomes standard practice. Embedding these actions in award schemes is a great way to create a legacy of healthier food provision and healthier food culture in local settings.
We heard from SUGAR SMART Brighton & Hove and the council's long-running Healthy Choice Award programme, and from SUGAR SMART Cornwall on their work with the county-wide Workplace Health scheme. We hope it provided participants with a better understanding of such schemes and a chance to consider opportunities to create a legacy of sugar reduction action in their localities.
Unfortunately due to a technical issue we were unable to record this webinar, we apologise for this. Please do have a look at the presentations and Q&A for insights.
