Playscheme go Sugar Smart

Over the summer Alex Kosmas, the Commission’s community nutritionist, worked with The Youth Commission’s playscheme to become Sugar Smart. Sugar Smart is a UK-based campaign set up by chef Jamie Oliver, and with the help of funding from The Guernsey Community Foundation we have established Sugar Smart Guernsey. The project with Playscheme involved helping the children to investigate hidden sugar in their food and drinks and learn about healthy alternatives. The children’s achievements were reported in the Guernsey Press here.

We aim to expand this workstream in 2020, so if you’d like your organisation or group to join the Sugar Smart movement then please get in touch with Alex.
