Parents' Jury – now recruiting

This is your chance to be heard on the food and nutrition issues which matter to you and your children.

The Parents’ Jury is our new initiative giving a voice to parents on the food available and promoted in their children’s schools, in shops, on the high street, and beyond.

We are currently looking for a broad mix of parents, from different backgrounds and areas, and with a range of views and experiences, to join the Jury.

Operation Eagle Eye

Together we can stand up to companies which target sugary food and drink at children.

New rules have finally come in restricting junk food advertising in children’s media, from magazines and cinema, to billboards near schools, to social media, apps and advergames.

Help us keep a close eye on ads; and swoop down and take action where brands are flouting the letter or spirit of these new rules.

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 Committee of Advertising Practice and the UK Government to introduce stronger regulations to stop companies from advertising unhealthy foods to children across all forms of media.

Latest publication

Most parents told us they are concerned that junk food advertising is having a significant impact on their children’s food choices. Many reported that their children were regularly being targeted and as a result increasingly associated unhealthy foods with treats and rewards, and asked for the brands they saw, making it harder for them to encourage healthy eating habits.

The campaign to implement a sugary drinks tax in the UK. Such a measure would protect children, save lives and save taxpayers’ money.

Reducing the added sugar in soft drinks is a public health and taxpayer priority. A sugary drinks tax is a tried, tested, fair and popular measure.

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.
