We’re campaigning to reduce sugar intake in the borough. Find out why and sign up to support us.
We consume too much sugar. Obesity, type 2 diabetes and tooth decay are increasing. In Lewisham:
two in five children are obese or overweight when they start secondary school
60% of adults are overweight or obese.
The Sugar Smart Lewisham campaign is trying to make a difference by reducing the availability and promotion of sugary products in the borough. We want you to help us make a difference.
Lots of businesses in the borough are becoming Sugar Smart. This means they are offering healthier alternatives to sugary products.
You can sign up to lobby organisations like your local shop, café or childminder to become Sugar Smart.
If you sign up, we will email you a letter template that you can give to your local businesses.
