Make a pledge to reduce sugar, be Sugar Smart!

Having too much sugar can lead to tooth decay, obesity and Type II diabetes. On average, UK adults eat and drink twice the daily recommended amount of sugar, whilst children and adolescents consume three times as much. So action on sugar is urgently needed! To help promote good health, we are challenging childminders to make a pledge to take at least three new Sugar Smart actions to help reduce excessive intake of sugar.
