SUGAR SMART September Week 3
It's week 3 of SUGAR SMART September and we hope you're still blocking the biscuits, and welcoming in the healthier food. This week, we're all about the healthy fundraisers plus we take a closer look at how to crack workplace cake culture:
  • New research reveals what workplaces really think about cake - the results might just surprise you
  • We hear from the construction site that's gone SUGAR SMART
  • We share ideas for healthy fundraisers
From frozen bananas and other healthy snacks to shocking sugar levels in cereals, we've loved hearing your SUGAR SMART September tales. Keep sharing your ideas and updates with us on Twitter using #SugarSmartSeptember and @SugarSmartUK
Construction sites tend not to be the first place to spring to mind when we think of healthier food, but one housing group set out to change all that when they went SUGAR SMART last year. Ocean Housing has now led a high profile SUGAR SMART awareness raising campaign across their site, as well as a 12 week modular on nutrition and healthy eating. Read the full article to find out what the construction workers made of the changes.
Workplaces don't want cake as regularly as it is offered according to new research from the University of Chester which found that workplaces want cake once a week or less. In fact, the most popular frequency was once a month. It's a suprisingly contentious issue with some of the nearly 1000 UK office workers that were surveyed saying it's a source of anxiety as well as a distraction that encourages overeating. Read the full article and check out the advice for cracking cake culture from Lou Walker, the health coach behind the research.
Fundraisers can be a great way to raise money for worthy causes, but they needn't be unhealthy. If you've got a fundraiser coming up, don't forget to make it SUGAR SMART! Check out these healthier recipes:
If you're planning SUGAR SMART events, check out the quizzes, logos, diary challenges, info and much more available on the website under the assets tab when you've logged in. And bag yourself some SUGAR SMART swag at our shop where we have branded t-shirts, mugs and bags available now.

That's it from us for this week. Next week we're focussing on drinking water when we're going to drop (sorry!) some fountain themed news into your inboxes so watch out for that. Until then!
