Reducing sugar on the menu in West Sussex Primary Schools

As part of the 'Sugar Champion' pilot programme, West Sussex County Council (WSCC) has worked with Chartwells to reduce total sugar on the menu by approximately 30% in 12 months. 

Chartwells cater for approximately 30,000 children in West Sussex every day so the result of these small recipe and menu changes is extremely impactful. Ensuring all menus meet school food legislation, Chartwells have worked with their suppliers to redevelop recipes and to review portion sizes to help ensure children are consuming less sugar.
