Join Sugar Smart and the Children's Food Campaign on Monday 18 Jan, 11-12.15, for a lively and interative webinar exploring the need for increased investment in healthy food projects at school, using the unallocated sugary drinks tax income.
Guest speakers include: Robert Halfon MP, Chair of the Education Select Committee, Alysa Remtulla from Magic Breakfast and National School Breakfast Programme and Laura Flanagan, School Food Improvement Officer from Croydon Council.
We will be launching our new report, 'Refreshing Investment in Children’s Health: Using the Sugary Drinks Tax to improve healthy food access in schools', which details how the Healthy Pupils Capital Fund in 2018/19 provided much needed investment in a range of projects from new school kitchens, dining room upgrades, food growing projects and healthy eating buses.
Come and join the debate to hear the case for using the sugary drinks tax money for a similar investment fund for schools, and your own ideas for what should be prioritised.
