Join us and sign the petition asking the NSW Government to give our children the best chance to grow into healthy adults.
Our research has found Sydney children travelling to school would be exposed to up to 2,800 unhealthy food advertisements a year, just from the transport mode they use.

Dob in an advertiser
There is a vast array of unhealthy food advertising out there and our children are vulnerable to the effects of these manipulative marketing campaigns, and they deserve to be protected.

You can also report any concerns to us, and we’ll lodge a complaint on your behalf. In your message, please include:
- Company name and product advertised

- Type of advertising (e.g., TV, billboard, etc.)
