Launch of SUGAR SMART Cambridge

On Saturday 27 January 2018 we launch SUGAR SMART Cambridge at Cambridge United’s Abbey Road.  Visitors and fans attending the home game will be invited to get involved and make SUGAR SMART pledges.  There will be information about sugar, healthy food options, plus some silly games and a competition give-away.  More details to follow shortly.  

Activities and events

SUGAR SMART Cambridge is supported by a steering group of local organisations who we work with to support specific projects and activities.  Budding young filmmakers are currently working with Oblique Arts on a project themed around the dangers of too much sugar.  We have also been running free family cookery workshops focused on reducing sugar content and cooking more fresh fruit and vegetables.  As well as sharing information and encouraging more organisations to get involved during 2018,  our activities include work with sports and leisure centres to encourage healthier vending machine choices for customers.  

Get involved

Anyone can pledge to become SUGAR SMART – from councils and schools to restaurants, hospitals and independent companies.  Find out how you can get involved here.
