We ran a student-led media project in the summer to discover the influences and pressures children face in making food choices.
We wanted to find out just how much food advertising a young person in Hackney comes face to face with on a daily basis (on the street, at school, at home and online), how they feel about that and, if these young people knew more about how they are being targeted by the food industry, how would that affect their food choices?
The children formed a small production crew called Fruity Tutti and made a short film about their findings which we showed at the Hackney Picturehouse. If you’d like to show it at a community, school, council or academic event let us know It is also available online. You can see it here The password is Frampton. Hackney Today gives more information about the film and who took part on p.19. Download the independent evaluation by Dr Frances Hansford, here: Frampton Film project evaluation report FINAL
We have also done an activity sheet which you can use with children before, during and after watching the film.
