Eat Culture, Nottingham Catering embraces Eat Them to Defeat Them campaign

27 Mar 2024
Eat Culture, Nottingham Catering has been ‘creating a stir’ at school lunch time by embracing the Eat Them to Defeat Them campaign, which aims to get more children eating vegetables.

The Eat Them to Defeat Them campaign from Veg Power and ITV, has reached 1.5 million schoolchildren across the UK. Children at Annesley Primary School have been enjoying a weekly veg taster as well as a full schedule of vegetable competitions and cooking sessions.

Chef supervisor Pam Flint and teaching assistant Dawn Hornsey dressed up as carrots to serve carrot dippers with a nut-free hummus for the campaign. Visiting every class and encouraging the children to try the veg tasters, the pupils were delighted.

Pam said: “It’s all about engaging the children in healthy eating and making food an important part of the school day. We ran a competition where we asked children to choose a vegetable as a superhero and give it superpowers. We chose eight winners, one from each year group, who won a cooking session with me making a dish of their choice.”
