Sugar Smart

Sugar Smart


Sugar Smart is a national campaign which aims to promote healthier options and reduce the amount of sugar we all consume.

Our Healthy Lifestyles Team have made the pledge to become Sugar Smart and already have the support of eight community partners, including:

  • Northbury Primary School
  • Southwood Primary School
  • Gascoigne Primary School
  • Valence Primary School
  • Eastbury Primary Community School
  • Barking Abbey Secondary School
  • Barking and Dagenham College
  • Barking and Dagenham Adult College


By joining the campaign, we have pledged to reduce the amount of high sugar products consumed in our team and to spread Sugar Smart awareness in the borough by holding stalls, assemblies and workshops.


Our vision is to become a Sugar Smart borough, where our community is always supported to make healthier, lower-sugar choices.

If you want to help us make a healthier difference in our community, sign up to become a Sugar Smart partner by contacting for more information.
