Eat Them To Defeat Them - VegPower 2022

One-third of primary school kids in Britain are overweight or obese. There are all sorts of different things that should or could be done, but here’s a really simple one that’ll have a massive impact – convincing kids to eat more veg.

But there’s a problem… many British children don’t really like veg. In fact, 80% don’t eat enough and 50% of parents say they have given up trying to get their kids to eat 5-a-day.

VegPower UK is on a ten-year mission to turn around vegetable consumption in the UK. The mission: to get every kid in the UK eating one more portion of veg each day. To find our more about their mission, visit their website here.

Our catering team at LEO have taken part in the national #EatThemToDefeatThem campaign. They have been getting very creative with vegetables, partaking in different themed weeks to create some show-stopping displays! The aim is to make eating vegetables more exciting for our pupils, and to teach them about the importance of healthy eating in a fun way.
