Veg Power is BACK for October 2020 with new challenges for all the family to enjoy!
Are you tough enough to ‘Eat Them To Defeat Them’ and compete in the Veg Chomp-ionship?
Children and families will need pit their wits and skill against each other in a Veg Chomp-ionship tournament, leading up to a celebration of World Food Day on Friday October 16th 2020.
Get involved here!
Vanquished all the Veg?
If you’re up for an even bigger challenge why not try these Spooktacular Halloween recipes that we created with ‘Teaming Up For Health’ the Hull KR/Hull FC joint project supported by NHS Hull CCG.

About Veg Power
Veg Power is a twice-a-year campaign to promote the consumption of vegetables by children and their families.
This online campaign is supported by activity packs distributed into schools and other childcare settings as well as through supermarkets and food banks.
The slogan is ’Eat Them To Defeat Them' and features activities and recipe ideas to reduce the ‘fear factor’ some children experience when eating new/different vegetables to those they are used to.
During February-April 2020, the Veg Power campaign reached 12 schools and 3,836 pupils in Hull. Those schools were as follows:
- Christopher Pickering Primary
- Chiltern Primary Academy
- Collingwood Primary
- Mountbatten Primary
- Priory Primary
- Rokeby Park Primary
- St James Primary
- St Vincent’s Primary
- Thanet Primary
- Thorpe Park Primary
- Wansbeck Primary
- Woodland Primary
For October 2020 we are expecting to receive 4,900+ activity books and are aiming to distribute them to more schools and children’s centres with the help of Hull City Council’s Healthy Lifestyles Team.
Families who do not receive a hard copy of the activity book will still be able to enter the competition by downloading an electronic version here.
The Veg Power activity pack can be downloaded here.
