Pledge to go fizz free this February to help kick the sugary drinks habit. Whether you're keen to take part as an individual, or get others on board in your community, we have resources and support to get you on your way.
Fizzy drinks are the largest single source of sugar for children aged 11-18. They provide an average of 29% of daily sugar intake with most containing 6 or more teaspoons of sugar per can.
Fizz Free February is a great way to reduce your sugar intake by cutting out fizzy drinks. By committing to going fizz free for the entire month of February it will make easier to cut down on fizzy drinks for the rest of the year.
Launched by Southwark Council in 2018 as a way to reduce fizzy drinks consumption across the London borough, SUGAR SMART joined forces with Southwark last year to take the campaign national, and we saw lots of local areas and thousands of people get involved.
We are again calling on everyone in our network from local SUGAR SMART campaigns and local authorities to organisations, schools, individuals and families to take part.
