Sheffield is sweet enough

You may have heard of ‘Sheffield is Sweet Enough’ - a city wide initiative launched by Sheffield City Council with the aim to help reduce tooth decay and obesity in Sheffield over the next five years.

 

The initiative provides information on the effects of too much sugar and the tools families need to make informed choices to support their health. The dedicated website has lots of interesting facts about sugar, guideline daily limits and top tips for healthy sugar swaps.

 

As part of the campaign a series of educational materials have been created, originally to go out to teachers in schools, but since the closures in March, the materials have been adapted to suit home learning. The aim is to help children investigate the sugar quantities in some popular foods by categorising them into good (hero) or bad (culprit) food and drink items, and find out how much sugar is too much.


A lesson plan, activity sheets, homework task and a certificate can be accessed via the ‘Download Materials’ section on the website and either used online, or printed out.

We would really appreciate if this formation could be shared in your school, with pupils, their parents and their families, and encourage them to do the FREE downloadable activities.
