Universities & Higher Education

Set SUGAR SMART challenges

Set a sugar reduction challenge, such as giving up sugary drinks for a whole week.

  • Challenge pupils or colleagues to give up sugary drinks for a set period of time in a ‘SWOP THE POP’ challenge. Encourage them to drink two litres of water a day instead.
  • Download the posters from Brighton and Hove calling on residents to swap sugary items and sugary drinks for sugar-free alternatives.
  • Introduce the Change4Life Sugar Swaps.
  • Check out the clip from Jamie’s Sugar Rush documentary for a bit of inspiration, below. The documentary contain some tough scenes and interviews, but it’s a great tool to get the message across.

We know that long-term behaviour change can be far more effective if it’s presented as small steps in the right direction.
