Sugar in School Canteens

NSW's canteen guidelines need to be updated to bring them into line with the Australian Dietary Guidelines, which recommend limiting the intake of food and drink with added sugars. 

I’m determined to improve the health of schools students. I’m working with Dr Kieron Rooney, senior lecturer and researcher in metabolic biochemistry at Sydney University, and Sarah Wilson, author of I Quit Sugar, on this campaign.

    I agree with minimising sugar in school canteens. However, I don’t want to print a petition and ask people for signatures in real life. I’d share an online petition with lots of people if there is one.
