It’s that time of year again where we look to celebrate the people and organisations that have made a significant contribution towards the Children’s Food Campaign’s goals over the past twelve months; and name the ‘zeroes’ who have thrown roadblocks in the way. However, in 2016 we’re doing the Children’s Food Heroes and Food Zeroes Awards slightly differently. This time you can send us your nominations.
Introducing the 2016 Awards:
Children’s Food Campaign aims to improve children's dietary health by improving the food available and marketed in our schools, on our high streets, in our communities, and throughout society.
The Children’s Food Heroes and Food Zeroes Awards started as a fun way for us to round-up the year’s activity and celebrate campaign successes. See who won the awards last year, and back in 2014 and 2013.
Thanks to all the positive feedback we’ve received, we want to do more to highlight those individuals, organisations and companies who have played their part – for good and ill – in our field. New for this year, we have created specific award categories, and we are seeking your nominations for each category.
Need help recalling all that has happened this year? See the stories in our news archive for a flavour of some of the main campaign news. But no need to limit your nominations just to those featured there!
Here are the categories for the awards:
Children’s Food Heroes:
Those who have stood out in their efforts to champion children’s rights, parent power, best practices and government action to improve the food environment children grow up in.
• Charity / Campaigns Organisation

>>> Nominate your chosen Children’s Food Heroes and Food Zeroes
Deadline is midday on Monday 19th December. The winners will be announced just before Christmas.
