For better school food, and food skills, and protecting children from junk food marketing

The Campaign wants to improve young people’s health and well-being through, good food and real food education in every school, protecting children from junk food marketing, and clear food labelling that everyone including children can understand. We believe that these ideas will help to solve the current crisis in children’s diets.

Healthy choices

Launch of new consistent food labelling scheme

We welcome the launch of the new consistent and authoritative front-of-pack traffic light labelling scheme. We want to see all food companies adopt the new labelling scheme, and will continue to put public pressure on those that have so far refused to sign up.

Wall of shame

Action on junk food marketing

Parents' efforts to help their children eat healthily are being undermined by sophisticated promotions for unhealthy foods on TV and online - these adverts are exploiting loopholes in advertising regulations.

We want the UK Government to introduce stronger regulations to stop companies from advertising unhealthy foods directly to children.

Food in schools

Save our School Food Standards

Academies do not have to apply the standards which safeguard school food. There is a real danger of poor quality food creeping back on the menu and junk-food vending machines edging their way back onto school grounds.

The Children's Food Campaign is funded by the British Heart Foundation
For over 50 years the British Heart Foundation have pioneered research that’s transformed the lives of people living with heart and circulatory conditions. Our work has been central to the discoveries of vital treatments that are changing the fight against heart disease. But so many people still need our help. Around 30% of children are overweight or obese which is putting them at risk of developing cardiovascular disease in the future. We are proud to fund the Children’s Food Campaign to help us reduce the number of overweight and obese children in the UK. For more information visit
