What is No Junk November?

No Junk November challenges to give up a junk food weakness or take the ultimate challenge and give it all up for the 30 days of November.

When is it on?

The challenge is from 1 November to the 30 November. But you can start fundraising as soon as you sign up!

I have a special occasion in November, what do I do?

Need to take a day off from the challenge for a special occasion? No biggie. Just donate $25 for a junk pass and help fund heart disease prevention and research.

Small changes for better health

High in salt, fat and sugar, overconsumption of easy-to-grab junk food is a problem for people of all shapes and sizes.

Alarmingly, the progress made against heart disease – the leading single cause of death in WA –  has slowed down and Australian households are already spending 58 per cent of their food budget on discretionary or “junk” food and drinks.

No Junk November does not want you to diet, focus on body shape or consider foods to be “bad” or “good” – these can all set up unhealthy eating patterns that can be detrimental to health. We want you to take some “breathing space” during November so that you can look at the influence junk food, junk food marketing, habit and stress is having on your food choices and look for ways to eat more fruit and vegetables.

Small changes are needed for better heart health.

How do I get involved?

No Junk November challenges you to give up junk food. Feel happier and healthier, and inspire change and conversations about heart health.

Sign up for No Junk November and join the fight against heart disease, Australia’s biggest killer.
