About Eat Like A Champ

Eat Like A Champ is a free, evidence - based healthy eating education programme aimed at primary school children aged 9-10 years – Year 5 (England and Wales), Primary 6 (Northern Ireland) and P6 (Scotland).

The aim of the campaign is to tackle the growing issue of poor nutrition and obesity amongst children through six specially tailored lessons about healthy eating, hydration and staying active. The concept of Eat Like A Champ is to make healthy eating exciting, and to inspire children to adopt the healthy choices of champions they admire.

The content of Eat Like A Champ was written in collaboration with the British Nutrition Foundation to ensure that the lessons are of the highest possible standard, up to date with the latest government guidelines, and complement primary school curricula throughout the UK. Our resources have been updated to reflect Public Health Englands' recent changes to the Eatwell Guide’ in 2016.
