Podcast: ‘Eat Them to Defeat Them’ 5 years on – what have Veg Power achieved?

The Food Active podcast aims to explore how we can collectively promote healthy weight, by looking at the social, environmental, economic and legislative factors which influence our lifestyle choices.

The latest episode of the Food Active podcast is now live!

With the return of the award-winning Eat Them to Defeat Them campaign this week, we spoke with Rebecca Stevens, Campaigns and Communications Manager and Stephanie Douglas, Head of Campaign Development at Veg Power to hear about the campaign’s achievements over the last 5 years, as well as other exciting projects and Veg Power’s plans for the future.

Since Eat Them to Defeat Them launched in 2019, over 1.5 million different children from 4,884 primary and special schools have benefited from the schools’ programme. This year’s campaign aims to build on the behaviour change success achieved in previous years.
