Something To Chew On

Something To Chew On

Premiership Rugby’s Something to Chew On programme delivers an exciting and effective approach across the top 20% of the most deprived schools using the power of Premiership Rugby’s 12 clubs to tackle the obesity epidemic across England.

Funded by Public Health England, the programme uses rugby to encourage children to become more active and to eat more healthily through tag rugby and classroom-based exercises. In Year One and Two, Something to Chew On educated nearly 15,000 young people about healthy eating, resulting in a positive impact on children’s food choices and making them more active.

The key aims of the project are to;

  • Improve young people’s understanding of what constitutes healthy eating and a healthy diet, as well as increasing their knowledge of food safety.
  • Increase young people’s uptake of physical activity.

Rugby’s diversity makes it the perfect vehicle to drive a health and activity led initiative; as a sport rugby can offer playing opportunities and role models to children of all shapes and sizes.
The interactive programme takes a rounded approach to teaching children about leading a healthy lifestyle.

The interactive programme takes a rounded approach to teaching children about leading a healthy lifestyle.

Delivering change that ensures all British children live healthy and active lifestyles requires an approach which can pass on information and inspiration to eat more healthily; tackles inactivity by promoting fundamentals of movement; and teams up with children, teachers, parents and professional sport to make changes in the long term.

“Premiership Rugby’s Something to Chew On healthy living programme does just that and we are very grateful for the technical and advisory support of Public Health England.” Wayne Morris, Community and Corporate Responsibility Director, Premiership Rugby

“Learning how to choose, cook and eat safe, healthy food from a young age is an invaluable skill. By ensuring youngsters develop these important life skills and good habits early; we hope this will have a positive and lasting impact throughout their lives.”

Something to Chew On helps children to learn about nutrition, the importance of maintaining a healthy weight and being active as part of a healthy lifestyle. We have no doubts that children taking part in the programme will find learning these skills both fun and stimulating.” Professor Kevin Fenton, Director of Health and Wellbeing, Public Health England.
