The Chewonthis website is designed for independent use by secondary school students aged 11-14.The website will also be useful to anyone who is interested in how our food is produced and its effect on our health and the environment.

The website is produced by The Food Commission Research Charity, a non government organisation that is totally independent of the food industry.

As we encourage children, young people and parents to think more about their food choices through our School Nutrition Action groups and across the curriculum we also ask people to consider making ethical food choices and try to think about how ‘honest’ food labelling.

This website provides sessions that can be used in the classroom or as a SNAG group activity in Secondary schools but it might also be appropriate for upper primary.
