We have only one objective, and that is to make Australia a healthy country. And to do that we need to focus on the children because the junk food advertisements create an illusion and it is easy to attack the kids. So we stand between them to protect the kids.
It is easy to join us as a volunteer! All you need to do is to log in to our website and enter your email ID and mention why you want to join us. Our professionals will call you and ask you some questions.
We don’t look for a specific qualification for our team of volunteers. We have doctors, dieticians, students, teachers, artists, etc. in our group. All you need is a comprehensive knowledge about the concept of junk food and healthy food.
No, there is no such charges here as our only intention is to educate children and parents about the ill effects of junk food. We are not a money making organisation!
All you need to do is to check the list of the ingredients of the food you want to eat. If 30 or 40% of the elements are either some oil or a type of sugar, then it is most likely a junk food. High fructose corn syrup in the ingredients is also a junk food indication.
People usually count pizza junk food, but it is not. It all depends on the cooking procedure. By using whole-wheat or some portion of whole-wheat crust and including cheese and different veggies as a topping, you can make it a healthy food.
Junk food is bad for health because eating such food daily can increase the risk of obesity and other chronic diseases such as cardiovascular disease, non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, type 2 diabetes and some types of cancers.
Although it is not at all advisable to eat junk food at all, you can have a little bit. It is advisable to consume around 20 g per day or less for an average adult. However, Australians consume about 28g of saturated fat daily
Yes, it can be beneficial. Keep some healthy snacks at your home so that the kids can eat them whenever they are hungry. If healthy food is easily accessible, they will fill full, and there will be no craving for junk food. This is a great way to develop a love for a healthy diet.
Banning junk food entirely is a bad idea because this restriction can make junk food even more appealing to the kids. So if you want to make them love healthy foods, you need to start slowly. Let them have the occasional treat and show them the harsh reality of junk food. Gradually, remove the junk food from their food list.
