What can you give up during FAST?

Traditionally the FAST is 24 hours without food but your school, class or year group can choose whatever challenge they like. Consider giving up:

  • Digital detox - mobiles, tablets, TV and laptops
  • Tea, coffee or fizzy drinks
  • Social media
  • Talking or using swear words
  • Using transport – walk to school
  • Gaming

Contact our team online or call 0800 032 4001 for more information.


FAST responsibly


If you are FASTing from food then get permission from a parent or guardian, and a teacher in school.

If you have a medical condition, please choose another FAST challenge.
