The Importance of Children's Health
Right around Australia, children are eating way too much processed packaged food every day, and not enough fruits and vegetables – the food they should be eating every day.
Our job is made more difficult by food companies who use sophisticated tactics designed to get our kids wanting more and more processed food.
Studies show that eating too little fruit and vegetables leads to poor health, concentration and behaviour in our kids. This is not OK, and we're committed to doing something about it.
At The Root Cause, we want to empower all children, parents, teachers and communities to choose real food every day, every week, every year, to create a tipping point where real food becomes "normal" again.
Our Vision is to create a generation of healthy, food-literate children who choose real food first, every single day.
Are you with us?
Many Hands Make Light Work
To make our vision a reality we need to have a much bigger influence on today's generation of kids. That's why we're looking for more people – like you! – to become Certified Instructors - so there are people on the ground, in communities, spreading the word.
Our ‘done for you health education programs’ are engaging, interactive and wholistic programs, designed to kick-start behavioural change around food and sustainability, through education and inspiration.
The programs are designed to empower kids to make better choices, help parents like us get our kids to eat healthier, and encourage people in a position of influence to champion good food behaviours and conversations.
Our flagship health education programs include the Children’s Health Program which incorporates the Mad Food Science Incursion for schools and The Mad Food Science Experience for community groups. We are continually innovating, investing and developing additional programs and resources so we can have an even bigger impact in children’s health.
Our programs have reached over 180 school and 44,000 children, parents and teachers. Our Certified Instructors are working in their communities with groups like The Smith Family, Intereach, TAFE, Councils, Oosh Programs, local sports clubs and more.
Applications are now open for our Certified Instructor Program, giving you the opportunity to inspire kids to make better food choices, start healthy food conversations in your community, and make a living while you're at it!

It's Time to Take Action
Our Programs get amazing feedback and responses from every time an instructor runs it, in any format. This education is so needed.
But Australia has thousands of sports clubs, thousands of After School and School Holiday Programs, thousands of organisations and over 6,200 Primary Schools, catering to over 2 million students!
Every year a new cohort of children go out into the world without the essential life skills of knowing how to make the best food choices for their bodies.
This is why it's time for you to step up and help us!
We need you to make the brave commitment to becoming a Certified Instructor, and partner with us in achieving our vision of a healthy generation of kids who choose real food first.
And most importantly, don't you deserve to be doing work you love, making an impact but doing it around your family?
Make a difference in the lives of THOUSANDS of children each year!
