Over the week we will be raising awareness of the health impacts of consuming excess sugar (and calories) and educating the public to help them to consume less.
The aim of the week is to create as much noise as possible to continue to put pressure on the government and industry and to get the public behind us.
How can you help?
Events held at a local community level as part of Sugar Awareness Week will play a huge part in helping us to spread the message to consumers about the health effects of consuming too much sugar and the importance of eating less.
We are asking for GP surgeries, hospitals, pharmacies, schools, canteens, libraries, work places and the like around the country to support Sugar Awareness Week by putting on a display or event during the week using resources produced by Action on Sugar to encourage people to think about sugar and how it affects their health.
We also encourage you to join the conversation on social media on our Twitter and Facebook pages #sugarawarenessweek and look out for details of our Twitter chat during the week.
If you are able to support the week and participate in any way, please tell us about your plans on Twitter. We will be highlighting events taking place on or around the week on our website and social media.
If you require any further information, do not hesitate to contact us. Please pass on to your colleagues who may be interested in supporting National Sugar Awareness Week.
