Eat Like A Champ (ELAC) is a free healthy eating educational programme designed for primary school children aged 9-10. The aim of this program is to tackle the growing issue of poor nutrition and obesity amongst children through six specially tailored lessons.
The concept of ELAC is to make nutrition and healthy hydration exciting for kids and inspire them to adopt the healthy choices of Champions they admire!
Since 2014, the champions have been former Blue Peter presenter and world-record breaker Helen Skelton.
Eat Like A Champ was developed with the British Nutrition Foundation, to help support the government’s Change4Life initiative, which is led by the Department of Health.
ELAC launched as a pilot programme in 25 London classes in 2010, and has grown year on year. In the 2015/2016 school year, it was rolled out to 2,000 classes all over the UK, reaching over 60,000 children.
