Change4Life - Sugar Smart World

Dated: 14-Jan-19

With 34% of children leaving primary school overweight, Change4Life has launched a new campaign, “make a swap when you next shop”, encouraging families to cut back on sugar. To complement the national campaign, Change4Life has created interactive lesson plans in partnership with teachers, qualified nutritionists and dental professionals. These English and Maths teaching resources support teachers to educate pupils about how to make healthier choices. 

The resources are set in ‘Sugar Smart World’ and teach pupils that the number of extra sugar cubes they are consuming is enough to wrap around the world more than three and a half times. A cartoon- themed Science lesson plan also helps pupils understand the effects that sugar has on their teeth.

Share these free resources with your networks to help tackle childhood obesity. 

The new Change4Life schools resources include:

Encourage school professionals to sign up to the School Zone, so they can be the first to hear about new teaching resources launching later this year.
