Children’s Food Ambassador Programme - UK

Children’s Food Ambassador Programme - UK

Children's Food Campaign is thrilled to introduce our new Children’s Food Ambassador Programme. We are looking to recruit a group of 12 extraordinary parents and carers of children aged under 18, across England, to join us.

If you’re a parent or carer with a child / children under 18, you can apply to be part of our programme, where we make your voice heard on the food issues which matter to you and your children.

What is the Children’s Food Ambassador Programme?

Children’s Food Campaign is creating a new voluntary panel to ensure our activities are informed and inspired by the realities and lived experiences of people with children.

For our first 2023 group, we are looking for up to 12 parents and carers of children aged 0-18, from different regions in England.

Children's Food Campaign will share insights from parents and carers, combined with public polling, with relevant Government departments, politicians, advertising regulators and industry bodies, as well as the media.

Why become a Children’s Food Ambassador?

We believe the voices of parents and carers are crucial to policy making on the future of children’s health and the food they eat. As a Children’s Food Ambassador, we will rely on your invaluable experiences and insights as you navigate the challenges and opportunities around healthy food for children. This will build on the previous work of our former Parents' Jury, where we explored various topics such as sports sponsorships, cartoon characters on packaging, school food and more.

Our new Children’s Food Ambassador programme will give up to 12 parents and carers the opportunity to form their own network, sharing experiences and ideas with people from across the country, and feeding into the development of our campaigns.

Through a mix of online and in-person conversations and workshops, you will be able to develop your voice and
expertise to influence the world of children’s food, working hand-in-hand with staff at the Children’s Food Campaign.

What can I expect being part of this programme?

  • Invitations to take part in online and in-person focus groups, every two months.

  • Quarterly interactive and tailored learning workshops, building the skills and knowledge you tell us you’d like to develop.

  • Opportunities to feed into to government consultations and respond to new developments in children’s food.

  • You may be encouraged to reach out to any networks you have such as your local MP, school networks or other parent groups to help promote your ambassador work.

    What we are looking for:

  • Open to all parents/carers/guardians of children under the age of 18 in England.

  • Passionate about the relationship between food and happy, healthy children!

  • Some degree of English is required.

  • Able to commit 12 months with us, with options to renew up to 3 years.

  • Able to dedicate about 2-4 hours per month.

  • Access to a device to join online meetings (if this is a concern, please highlight this in your application).

  • Ability to travel within the UK to two in-person meetings or workshops per year (travel and any other necessary expenses to facilitate your participation will be covered).

  • Previous or current experience of being part of family or community networks or groups is desirable but not essential.
