THINK BEYOND SUGAR

Transforming the way we reward our children
Take the Sugar Quiz to find out how much sugar you are consuming.

Let’s shift our rewards culture

Our mission is to transform how children’s behaviour is rewarded in the classroom.

We work with schools to shift the rewards culture away from sweets and chocolates towards sugar-free non-food solutions. Our school partnerships aim to stop children associating sugar with feeling better and being happy. Our team of professionals include Dentists, Doctors, a Nutritionist, Psychologists and a chef.

Through our work, our children will positively benefit from life-long healthy eating habits.

Take the sugar quiz

Find out how much sugar you are eating. We often don’t know we’re even eating it. That’s because some of the added sugar we consume is found in the food and drink we think of as healthy.

What People Say about The Rewards Project

John Edwards, optician

The project has been a complete inspiration to me. After many years of
talking to our patients about the damaging affect of diabetes on vision
and eye health and, how important reducing sugar is to controlling
diabetes, I found the Rewards Project one of the first things that I
have ever seen that works as a support tool. What you have created has
the power to change attitudes towards sugar without ‘beating people up’
about it. And that is what is really needed here in the UK and I
suspect, around the World – changing attitudes towards sugar will, I am
sure, make more inroads into people’s sugary lifestyles than an enforced
diet.

To further evidence this potential to change attitudes, I have
personally thrown a teaspoon of sugar in my cups of tea for the past 40
years. I’m not overweight, I exercise regularly – I just like sweet
tea. That’s how I justified it to myself! I deserved this ‘treat’
because I’d earnt it. The Rewards Project has made me realise that it
isn’t a treat at all. I must have consumed over 200 kilos of sugar in
my tea in that time – wow, I think I’ve just been lucky.

And so, from a personal perspective, you have changed my attitude and
I’m just starting to enjoy a hot drink that tastes of tea and not
sugar! Thank you.

Good luck with furthering the reach of the project, I believe it will
impact many lives in a very positive way.

“Such a fantastic idea! I try really hard to keep my kids’ diets balanced and their sugar intake low at home. It’s crazy and extremely frustrating to undermine this with sugary treats as rewards at school.”

Dr Sharon Lawrence, GP

I have been very inspired by the Rewards Project. For years, many schools reward children with sweets and chocolates for good behaviour and this has become part of everyday culture. This increases the growing problems of childhood obesity , diabetes, coronary heart disease as well as many other health conditions. A change in the mindset of teachers, parents and ultimately students in this respect will be a very positive step in the right direction for this and future generations of our children.
