Eat Smart Sheffield

Eat Smart Sheffield

Eat Smart Sheffield works with all primary and secondary schools across the city as well as some additional settings including Special Schools and Pupil Referral Units, encouraging and supporting pupils, their families and the wider community to adopt healthier eating behaviours.

The programme has two main aims:

  1. To give schools the tools they need to make long term changes to their food culture and their curriculum to support healthy behaviours
  2. To give pupils and their families the confidence, skills and knowledge they need to cook, grow and enjoy good quality affordable food, as well as increasing understanding of food sources and sustainability

Ultimately, Eat Smart Sheffield will contribute to reducing childhood obesity and child tooth decay in the 20% most deprived areas of the city.
