At Can Cook/Well-Fed we believe that everyone, no matter what their circumstances, should have access to nutritious and locally made food.
As demonstrated in our recently published report, Good: Removing Ultra-Processed Food; ultra-processed foods account for 60% of the calories consumed by older children and adults as well as 75% of school meals, but little do people realise what impact this is having on their long-term well-being.
Found in everyday favourites from ham sandwiches through to pre-prepared pasta sauces, eating a UPF-heavy diet is linked to a higher risk of cancer, obesity, heart disease, and type 2 diabetes as well as a range of other serious health related issues.
That’s why, as a fresh food business, we are now calling on the Welsh Government to remove these harmful, and often hidden ingredients, from the public sector supply chain by the start of the school year in September 2026.
So, whether you’re a concerned parent, frustrated grandparent or just passionate about good food, help us to ensure healthier futures for all our children by signing our petition today.
