Being Sugar Smart

Sugar Smart Hackney is part of the national campaign Sugar Smart UK. Sugar Smart Hackney aims to reduce sugar intake in the borough.

We work with schools, businesses and organisations to raise awareness and take actions to reduce sugar.

See NHS advice on how to cut down on sugar in your diet.

Join Sugar Smart Hackney

We encourage schools, businesses, and organisations to make small changes to their food or drinks service, so people eat less sugar and drink more water.

Your school, business or organisation needs to take at least 3 new actions to
reduce sugar intake to receive a Sugar Smart certificate.
