Remove adverts for sugar

Remove ads and make it policy not to advertise or promote any food and drink high in sugar.

  • Update or draft your policy and stop advertising or promoting any drinks or snacks that are high in sugar, fat or salt.
  • Download the example of a policy from a local authority that you can adapt to your own setting.
  • You may need to get senior managers or leaders to agree to this, but banning advertising is a great way of raising awareness across a whole organisation and of positively altering the workplace environment.


  • Download the case study of a local authority who decided to take action to protect residents, especially children from advertising.
