Ask your local council to take action on healthier food

Ask your local council to take action on healthier food

Is your borough SUGAR SMART?

Overconsumption of foods high in sugar, fat and salt and sugary drinks is a major contributor to poor health in the UK. Unfortunately they are available at every turn, at every time of the day and night and strategically located near schools, on our high streets and in areas of higher deprivation.

The problems are particularly bad in London where one in four children are overweight or obese by the time they start primary school, and one in three by the time they start secondary school.

That’s why London Food Link is asking local authorities to lead the way in taking action on sugar reduction and healthier foods.

Whether it's tackling advertising and sponsorship, improving food choices, reducing sugary drinks and promoting free drinking water, supporting businesses to improve their food offer or raising public awareness – there are many ways for councils to make a difference in the health of people who live and work here!

Ask your local council to get #SugarSmart
