Bristol is set to launch a new programme to reduce the amount of sugar people are eating in a bid to tackle obesity and dental problems in the city.

Bristol’s Youth Council will be helping to steer the direction of the new programme, which will see Bristol become the first city in the South West to join forces with chef Jamie Oliver's Food Foundation and become a ‘Sugar Smart City’.

Theo Davies, a pupil at North Bristol Post 16 Centre and one of Bristol’s Youth Mayors, said:  “It is shocking and unacceptable that my generation is the first predicted to live shorter lives than our parents thanks to obesity and poor diet.”
