Eat Like A Champ is a free, evidence based healthy eating education programme aimed at Year 5 primary school children. Through six specially tailored lessons in healthy eating, hydration and staying active led by teachers in their classes, Eat Like A Champ aims to make learning about healthy lifestyles exciting and inspiring for children.
Eat Like a Champ has been developed by Danone in collaboration with the British Nutrition Foundation, who ensure that the resources are in line with the latest government guidelines. The programme also underwent a rigorous independent study by the Children’s Food Trust in 2012, which found that children who took part in Eat Like A Champ shifted their behaviour towards healthier eating habits.
The first 3000 classes to register for Eat Like A Champ will receive a free hard copy of our toolkit, delivered directly to your school. The Eat Like A Champ toolkit is colourful and interactive, containing a teacher’s guide with lesson plans, worksheets, an Eatwell Guide poster, flashcards, stickers and a homework passport for each child to take home. The toolkit has also been completely updated this year, following Public Health England’s recent changes to the Eatwell Guide. Eat Like A Champ also has a comprehensive website, providing digital copies of the toolkit resources, supporting powerpoints for each lesson, and extra tips and activities for parents and children.
