Go ‘Fizz Free’ For Feb, urge Dudley Council
Could you and your family give up fizzy drinks for February? Dudley Council is backing a campaign encouraging both children and adults to bin fizzy pop for a month to reduce sugar intake, lose weight, save money and protect their teeth.
Families are being urged to pledge their support to the campaign online.
It comes after it was revealed around a third of primary and secondary school pupils surveyed in Dudley last year reported having sweets or non-diet fizzy drinks on “most days”.
Councillor Cathy Bayton, cabinet member for health and adult social care, said:
The campaign is also being backed by Dudley Young Health Champions.
Commit to Fizz Free Feb now by completing our pledge form at www.lets-get.com or by tweeting @dudleymbc and @LetsgethealthyD using #gofizzfree.
The campaign was first established by Southwark Council in 2018.
