No Sugar Challenge


One week. No treats. Help end hunger. 

🍬 What is it and why? 🍬

For one week, pledge to say NO to added, processed sugar, and artificial sweeteners, in solidarity with the 690 million people across the world who live below the poverty line and for whom treats are a rare occurrence.

Maybe you’ve been considering cutting out sugar for a while or maybe you’re looking to take on a new challenge… Take the plunge, curb those cravings, and commit yourself now. You’ll be helping to empower communities to end their own hunger for good.

On the No Sugar Challenge, these are some of the foods to avoid:

  • Desserts
  • Chocolates
  • Biscuits
  • Cakes
  • Sweets
  • Sweetened or fizzy drinks
  • Alcohol
  • Juices

What can you replace them with?

  • Fresh whole fruits – especially berries
  • Limited dried fruits without added sugar (check the label!) e.g. a small handful, or a couple of dates per day
  • A maximum of one teaspoon of honey or maple syrup per day

Did You Know ?

The average person in the US consumes 126.4grams of sugar PER DAY, and in the UK we’re not much better: 93.2grams! The World Health Organisation recommends that an adult should have a max of 25grams per day. 


Why a no sugar challenge? 

We want to highlight the fact that 690 million people across the world are still living in chronic hunger. 
Chronic persistent hunger is the day in day out lack of vital nutrients that the body needs.  

Fundraising on the No Sugar Challenge supports The Hunger Project, an organisation who works to empower people to lift themselves, their families and communities out of daily persistent chronic hunger, for good.  

Can I take the challenge for more than one week?  

Yes. Some participants will commit to take the challenge for longer than a week. Go for it! 

What can I drink? 

You can (and should) drink plenty of water throughout your challenge. Please try to keep hydrated.  

Can I do a team No Sugar Challenge? 

Yes! Sign up and organise your friends and colleagues to take part for a week and support each other along the way!
