McCain promotes healthy eating in Australian schools

Rebecca Prescott28 Jul 2011

McCain Foods says it will promote healthy eating by school visits throughout eastern Australia in a campaign to teach children about healthy eating.

The company says that the tour will complement the School Veggie Patches Programme, which involves school children planting and growing vegetables in their own schoolyard.

The Veggie Truck is expected to tour eastern Australia from August until early September. MacCain hope to build school spirit across the country by helping primary school students to grow their own school vegetable patch.

A McCain spokesperson said: "The McCain Red Veggie Truck Tour will be visiting schools from South East Queensland through to Victoria to teach children about the goodness of vegetables and healthy eating in a fun and engaging way."
