Cycle for a Cure to eradicate Type 1

diabetes at a bespoke event on 18 May

2019. A unique cycling experience with

a family-friendly, festival feel, the day will

include a range of workshops, guest speakers, food and an award ceremony on the day.

The event will take place on the test track at the Ford Dunston Technical Centre, where

you can choose between advanced (100 km) and intermediate (50 km) courses for

adults, as well as a child-friendly route (also on the test track) for the little ones to enjoy.

The UK has one of the highest rates of Type 1 diabetes in the world, for reasons that

are currently unknown and every 90 minutes, someone in the UK is told they have it.

This event is a vehicle for change for over 400,000 children and adults living with Type

1 diabetes in the UK. Cycle for a Cure and help create a world without Type 1 diabetes.

LABELS ON

THE PACK

According to a survey commissioned

by Diabetes UK, three in five (61%) of

UK adults say they find it difficult to

access nutritional information when

eating out. The charity is calling on

the 'out-of-home' sector to recognise

their responsibility to help consumers

eat more healthily by providing

information on the nutritional content

of food bought from restaurants,

cafes and takeaways.

With half of respondents (49%)

reporting they eat dinner out once a

week or more, the charity is taking action

to give all customers the information they

need to make healthier choices about the

food they're eating in order to help tackle

the UK's obesity crisis, and stem the

growing numbers of people developing

Type 2 diabetes as a result.

Via its Food Upfront campaign,

Diabetes UK is calling for the 24

biggest out of home outlets to help

fight obesity by adopting the Diabetes

UK Food Upfront Pledge. This would

ensure that consumers have access to

clear, consistent and easily accessible

information on the nutritional contents of

food they eat out at the point of purchase.

Following Diabetes UK campaigning,

the UK Government is consulting on

legislation to mandate consistent calorie

labelling in England in the out of home

sector. Three in five (60%) respondents

to Diabetes UK's polling in January 2018

said they'd be more likely to spend money

in an establishment with traffic food

labelling.
