SUGAR SMART September Week Two
It's week two of SUGAR SMART September and my, do we have a sweet newsletter for you.
  • We get the inside scoop on Rochdale Public Health team's SUGAR SMART commitments
  • We share more free resources to give your campaign a boost
  • We reveal the 10 SUGAR SMART workplace challenges - can your workplace take on all ten?
This Thursday (12th September) is Healthy Snack Day. Share your healthy snack with us. For ideas and inspiration, check out the Healthy Snack Day website.

As always, let us know how you're getting on via Twitter - #SugarSmartSeptember @SugarSmartUK.

Don't forget, it's never too late to get involved. Why not start by printing off and signing your colleagues up to try the SUGAR SMART September challenge diary? (word document version available here and under the assets tab of the website).
Plus, after all the mentions of their use as powerful motivators to drink more water in our workplace case studies, we've been inundated with requests for urine charts (yes really!). By showing what good hydration looks like, they're a great way to encourage people to drink more water. Thank you to Kylie from Cornwall NHS Foundation Trust for designing and sharing the chart. Download and print off your own chart for free from the assets page when you log in to the website - you'll find it among all the other free resources.
Rochdale's Public Health team have been championing the SUGAR SMART campaign across their borough for a while now so we thought it was about time we found out what they're doing in their own workplace. And they did not disappoint! They've waded in at the deep end with healthy bake fundraisers, challenging their external caterer and even doing deals with a construction company to get a water fountain installed. Read their full story.
We know how tough it can be to change a deeply embedded cake culture but taking on challenges as a workplace can be a great approach. Why not dare your workplace to take on The 10 SUGAR SMART workplace challenges? From walks to water, snacks to vending machines - will your workplace be abe to tackle them all?
In next week's newsletter, we're going to be focussing on drinking water fountains and we have some very exciting news! Fancy seeing more fountains in your local area?

Best of luck with week 2 of #SugarSmartSeptember! Until next week.
