Sheffield sweet enough

Sheffield Council has launched a campaign to reduce sugar intake and to promote healthy eating. Almost two thirds of Sheffield adults are said to be overweight and one in four children are above a healthy weight when they start school. The amount of tooth decay is also a concern with over 2,000 children from across the city hospitalised for painful tooth extractions in just one year. The campaign includes a guide book on how to cut down sugar as well as recipes for food ideas. Fifty percent of the books printed will be donated to lower-income families in Sheffield whilst the rest will be on sale at retail outlets across the city.
