I joined the Youth Board because I refuse to sit and watch a failed food system continue to have such a negative impact on the youth. My participation means I am able to play an active role in voicing some of the struggles young people face on the high-street, at school and at home when it comes to healthy eating.
Our environment is incredibly skewed to promote foods that are high in fat, sugar and salt which makes it very difficult for individuals to choose nutrient-dense foods. As a result, I want to be a part of a movement that is changing society by putting the future health of the next generation at the forefront of its mission.
I care about Bite Back 2030's mission because when your health fails it over shadows everything else in your life, and not only has the impact of obesity hit close to home, but I feel a moral responsibility to look out for my family, friends, peers and other young people and Bites Back 2030's mission is just another way I can do that.
