‘Sheffield is Sweet Enough’ is a city-wide initiative launched by Sheffield City Council in partnership with Healthcare Professionals, Sheffield’s Universities, Learn Sheffield (including Eat Smart Sheffield), Weight Management Services, Education Settings, and the Voluntary Sector. Its aim is to inspire a social movement to help reduce obesity and tooth decay across the city.

The initiative provides information to the people of Sheffield on the effects of too much sugar, giving them the tools they need to make informed choices to support their health and that of their family’s.

Visit their website for lots of interesting facts about (often hidden!) sugar, guideline daily limits and top tips for sugar swaps.

The launch event was held at Woodthorpe Primary School who have been using Sheffield is Sweet Enough educational materials as part of their classroom learning, and we encourage all schools to follow suit.
