Information for families
Please download and share with your parents and carers this super simple guide to the campaign. It’s been designed to email or post to social media or parent portals, and works well on mobile phones. This will help build excitement and empower parents and carers to maximise the lasting effect – getting their kids eating more veg.
Why not kick-off the programme in your schools with an assembly? We have an assembly, with PowerPoint and video.
Social Media Toolkit
Our campaign is about everyone coming together – parents, carers, catering teams, schools, local government, nutritionists etc. – to help get our kids eating more veg. Social media is where that community meets to support and inspire each other.
Please read our social media toolkit for all the dates, hashtags, a few ideas and a link to resources to support you on social.

It’s the thousands of school caterers, teachers and community workers who make Eat Them to Defeat Them such a success. We are hugely grateful for the immense support so many have given to this campaign.
