SUGAR SMART – working with water companies and engaging teenagers

6th March 2018

This webinar organised by Sustain and Sustainable Food Cities focused on engaging young people on the issue of sugar overconsumption. Research has found that 11-18 year olds consume three times the maximum recommended amount of added sugar. We heard from SUGAR SMART campaigns in Bristol & Norwich, who have formed partnerships with local water companies to resource and deliver engaging campaigns aimed at young people.
