STANDING FOR CHILDREN'S HEALTH
If you have a deep concern for children's health, you've come to the right place.
We're The Root Cause, and we aim for empowerment, while keeping things fun.
We start conversations with children, parents and schools about food, and how it impacts health, learning, waste and the environment.
We're proud to be encouraging better food choices through education and inspiration, and Standing for Children's Health.
JOIN THE MOVEMENT AND STAND FOR CHILDREN'S HEALTH
In Australia alone, more than 2 million children are living with at least 1 chronic condition.
"Managing chronic conditions can be complex, expensive and take a psychological, social and economic toll on the children affected and their families." AIHW Australia's Children Report 2017-2018
Together, we can Stand for Children's Health.
Together, we can create a generation of children who choose real food every day, enabling them to be better learners, more successful students and go onto build stronger, healthier communities. When we do this for this generation, we do it for all future generations. Will you stand with us?
