Join the call with parents and urge all political parties to prioritise children’s health!

The Children’s Food Campaign has worked with parent ambassadors to create and launch a new parents’ manifesto: Our Children, Our Future. It’s a heartfelt call from parents to all political parties to prioritise healthy children's food in their manifesto policies and in any new Government. Here's how you can support it.

Here’s what parents are calling for:

  1. Make free, healthy & sustainable school food a priority for all children from nursery to sixth form/college 
  2. Protect children from the flood of unhealthy food advertisement and marketing 
  3. Ensure honest and trustworthy information is provided on food and drink packaging 
  4. Make nutritious food affordable and accessible to all families 
  5. Put a stop to the sale of high-caffeine energy drinks to children 

Read the manifesto summary

We have exciting plans for a delegation of parents to present this manifesto in Parliament later this year, alongside a list of everyone who's shown their support. 

We'd love your support - it's very easy, just add your details below. Your email will not be shared any more widely.
