About Veg Power
Veg Power is a campaign to promote the consumption of vegetables by children and their families. It 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.
Each week will feature a rally cry around one of Britain’s family favourite vegetables.
We ask school caterers to lay out tasty sample dishes of each weeks veg. There are stickers to reward the kids who give them a try, and back home the kids will have a reward chart to encourage them to repeat and normalise eating that veg. Some schools really go for it!
If you are a children's centre, primary school or a school which caters for kids with special educational needs and you would like to take part, please contact Veg Power to register your interest. Contact Stephanie Douglas at firstname.lastname@example.org
