The Children's Health Fund (CHF) was set up by Jamie Oliver and Sustain in August 2015. The aim is to get restaurants and cafes to volunteer to put a 10p sugary drinks levy on non-alcoholic soft drinks on their menu with added sugar.
It pioneered a sugary drinks levy on soft drinks working with over 100 restaurant outlets in the UK to raise money for children's projects. The money raised was granted to over 50 projects across the UK improving children's health.
With the introduction of a Soft Drinks Industry Tax in April 2018, we are passing the baton on to Government.
The Children's Health Fund is now closed.
