Secondary Schools

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.


Please join SUGAR SMART to access all the downloads for this action.

SUGAR SMART is working with secondary schools across the UK to help people become smart about sugar.
