Teenagers campaign for 'traffic light' labels on food packaging

Bite Back 2030 was set up in 2019 to create an “unstoppable movement” of young people to campaign for healthier eating.

The organisation has a youth board consisting of 12 teenage activists, who are lobbying food companies and the government to improve access to healthy food. It is also urging young influencers to send out more positive messages about healthy eating to their millions of social media followers. “We want honest, simple and helpful labelling like the traffic light system out there on everything. And if food companies won’t do it voluntarily, we want the government to step up and step in. The UK should be leading by example, not falling behind” said Bite Back 2030’s youth chair, 16-year-old Christina Adane.
