Taking action to Create Healthier Happier Caribbean Children

Together we want to ensure that schools across the Caribbean are healthy schools in which children, adolescents and young people;

Have access to healthy foods and beverages low in sugars and fats
Unhealthy foods and beverages should not be available or permitted in and around schools ensuring that the healthy choice is the only choice.
Are safe from the predatory advertising and promotion of junk foods
The ultra processed food and beverage industry targets young children to build brand loyalty and ultimately increase profits. This is unethical and violates the Convention of the Rights of the Child to which all CARICOM countries are signatories.
Are engaged in daily mandatory physical activity
The WHO recommends 60 minutes of moderate to vigorous-intensity physical activity daily for children and adolescents 5-17 years of age.
