What's this for? 

Contains helpful information for families on the new sugar guidelines.

A resource for families:

Focusing on the new sugar guidelines, the Sugar Smart parents' pack provides families with the knowledge and tools they need to help them cut down on sugar. The pack contains a leaflet and stickers for pupils to take home in their book bags. 

To go along with the Sugar Smart pack, families can download the Change4Life Sugar Smart app to help them visualise the sugar lurking in foods. Sugar content is brought to life on the screen with a visual of sugar cubes. The Sugar Smart app can be found on the App Store* or Google Play. Further resources, including recipes and ideas for healthy swaps, will be available from the Change4Life website to help parents take control of the sugar in their child’s diet.

*If searching for the app on an iPad please change your search settings to search for iPhone only.

"They have stimulated a great deal of questioning and learning that we can already see is making a difference to our children’s and families shopping and eating choices."
Jason O’Rourke, Headteacher, Washingborough Academy, Lincoln
