We are delighted to announce the Children's Food Campaign's first ever summit on 16 May 2023 in Leeds. This in-person event brings together leading voices from the world of children’s food and the opportunity to shape future plans with other change-makers. 

Our programme includes the following highlights: 

  • A special performance from Food Foundation youth ambassadors across Yorkshire, shedding light on their firsthand experiences of healthy food access.  
  • Hear from Henry Dimbleby, Thomasina Miers and Christina Adane who will be discussing how we can land our ideas with policy makers in the build up to the General Election. 
  • Hear more about the Children’s Food Campaigns latest work, including our ‘Say Yes’ to school food for all campaign and our local food advertising toolkit.
  • Be part of our very first ‘yummy/yucky’ awards ceremony where we will be recognizing innovative local initiatives, the unshakeable political campaigners, and business baddies in our movement.
  • Explore subjects in more detail through our workshops on school food, early years, fiscal measures, healthy food advertising and diversity and inclusion

Children's Food Campaign: Better food and food teaching for children in schools, and protection of children from junk food marketing are the aims of Sustain's high-profile Children's Food Campaign. We also want clear food labelling that can be understood by everyone, including children.
