80% of our kids are not eating enough veg and Veg Power is on a mission to change this.
Veg Power is an initiative launched by the Food Federation with the help of experts and advisors lead by Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall, Jamie Oliver, Dr Rangan Chatterjee and advertising legend Sir John Hegarty. They intend to use the power of communications to inspire children to eat more veg, and to support parents trying to get more veg into their kid's diet.
We know a good diet in childhood can protect our kids from ill health in later life. A healthy diet with enough vegetables can also help their physical and academic development, giving them a happier and healthier childhood.
Over the next 12 months Veg Power is aiming to:
● Deliver exciting campaigns to prove we can inspire kids to love veg
● Channel this great pool of expert knowledge to empower parents
● Use the success of that work to make the case to our contacts in government, supermarkets and the farming community to provide the funds we need to send Veg Power into every home.
● Produce a truely epic book of Veg Power. The book with contain fun kids' activities, veg facts, tips and kid friendly veg-centered recipes ranging from snacks and sides to breakfasts and even desserts, from over 50 expert contributors.
