“We’re incredibly excited to be the official ambassadors of the Get Set to Eat Fresh programme,” Alistair Brownlee. “It has already had a huge impact on young people’s healthy eating habits around the country.”
Jonny Brownlee added: “As athletes, we know how important diet, nutrition and being active is to living a healthy lifestyle and we strongly believe we can help support the ambitions of Aldi and Team GB as they look towards 2020.”
Taekwondo star and Olympic gold medallist Jade Jones said: “Get Set to Eat Fresh is an important programme for pupils, teachers and parents to boost their awareness about healthy eating and regular exercise. I hope to see many more schools around the country getting involved with their own innovative healthy eating activities.”
Get Set to Eat Fresh builds on the success of Get Set, the official youth engagement programme of Team GB and ParalympicsGB, and is set to improve the eating habits of 1.2 million young people in the UK by 2020. The programme provides free, fun and engaging curriculum-linked resources which use Team GB athletes to inspire students about the benefits of healthy eating.
First launched in October 2015 by Team GB and Aldi, this nationwide education programme for young people aged 5-14 aims to tangibly improve the eating habits of at least three in four of all participating children. Since its inception, Get Set to Eat Fresh has reached more than 400,000 young people with more than 2,000 schools already signed up.
