Schools Food Trust uses celebs to promote healthy eating

LONDON -- Andrew Flintoff and Frank Lampard are among the celebrities enlisted to feature in the latest campaign for The School Food Trust, the body responsible for revolutionising children’s school dinners.

As well as sports stars, the poster ads showcase celebrities like Myleene Klass, Blue Peter presenter Konnie Huq and cartoon characters Charlie and Lola to target both primary and secondary school audiences.
By using sporting and celebrity role models, the campaign aims to link a
healthy approach to eating with a sporty lifestyle.
In one execution featuring Frank Lampard on the football pitch, a personal
quote from him says: "A healthy diet means I can be at the peak of fitness
for every game." Another more vibrant poster, aimed at primary school children features young pop group bell's boys, who say: "if we didn't eat well we'd run out of steam."
The campaign will appear nationwide later this month in school canteens to
encourage children to try healthier food options.
