Confectionary and sugar sweetened beverages are strategically placed within reach of children at checkouts in supermarkets, post offices, pharmacies, petrol stations and other retail outlets such as Target and Kmart. This product placement fuels pester power and makes it more difficult for us to make consistently healthy choices for our children.
Parents’ Voice campaigns for healthier checkouts in all Australian retail outlets.
Take a photo of the checkout at your local supermarket, chemist, postoffice or any retailer. Tag it with #unhealthycheckouts or #healthycheckouts, post it on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram and tag us @ParentsVoiceAu or @parentsvoiceau. We’ll find it, RT/Regram/Share it, and use it to help push the case for healthy checkouts.
You can also email your pics to firstname.lastname@example.org.
