Food for Health Alliance advocates for policy reform to create to a heathier food environment.
Our policy work is informed by the evidence of what is most effective in improving diets and reducing overweight and obesity. We support changes across the food system, as well as to areas beyond the food system that we know can influence health. We advocate for the health and wellbeing of all Australians, particularly children, to be prioritised by all governments in Australia, and to be put above the profits of the processed food and related industries.
To help inform the development and implementation of effective food policy in Australia, Food for Health Alliance makes submissions to relevant Commonwealth, State and Territory government consultations and inquires, as well as to some relevant international consultations.

Effective policy and regulatory change must be evidence-based. Our work is informed by current evidence, and we work with researchers, health professionals and other policy experts to build, inform and communicate the evidence on diets, obesity prevention, trends, and impacts.

Food for Health Alliance would like to acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land on which we live and work. We would also like to pay respect to the elders past and present and extend that respect to all other Aboriginal people.
