Crunchy success in Brighton – inspiring pupils to eat more veg

A trial of ‘Power Pots' – raw vegetables served in colourful beakers and supported by clever marketing materials and activities – was positively received by pupils in Brighton. This was the result of work by Brighton and Hove Food Partnership to reduce food waste and increase children's veg consumption during school meals in partnership with the Brighton & Hove City Council Primary School Meals Service.

Luton and Portsmouth getting veg in the community
Community Food Hubs in Luton are helping people get involved in growing, cooking and eating together, leading to higher consumption of fresh fruit and vegetables, particularly amongst communities at risk of or experiencing food poverty. Meanwhile, school pupils are getting involved in a competition to win a £50 voucher to be used to support healthy eating initiatives in their school. In Portsmouth, children and young people are trying new healthier foods, learning to cook, eating healthy balanced meals, and learning about growing their own fruit and vegetables in a number of holiday youth club projects and adventure playgrounds.
