Sugar Smart Hackney: Residents Survey

Closed 30 Oct 2017

Opened 18 Sep 2017

Results updated 3 Jan 2018



Excessive sugar consumption is bad for our health.  

On average adults eat and drink twice the recommended amount of 7 teaspoons of added "free sugar" each day whilst children consume three times the recommended amount of 5-6 teaspoons.  

We want Hackney to become “Sugar Smart” by helping people in the borough reduce their sugar intake. In order to do this we need your help.

Please answer the following short questions and tell us what you think we can do to help people eat less sugar.

If you complete this survey, you have the chance of winning one of the following prizes!

  • Family tickets (2 adults and 2 children) to Cinderella Pantomime at Hackney Empire
  • A week's worth of free recipe kits for one family provided by Make Kit
  • A local organic veg box from Growing Communities
  • 2 x cinema tickets for Hackney Picturehouse
  • Free brunch for 2 people at E5 Bakehouse
  • A Made in Hackney chef’s apron


**Free sugar is any sugar that is added to foods at home or by the producer, plus sugar naturally present in honey, syrups and fruit juices.  It does not include sugar naturally present in milk or whole fruit and vegetables
