Marks and Spencer have announced that M&S Food is partnering with the Home Nations to try and promote being healthy.
The chain has agreed to partner with England, Scotland, Northern Ireland and the Wales national teams.
Announcing the partnership, M&S tweeted to explain what the campaign is all about, accompanying the tweet with a promotional video, which you can watch for yourself further down this article.
They wrote on Twitter: “We’re so pleased to announce that M&S Food is partnering with England, Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales to help families and the next generation to make healthier choices.
“Because we all know that to play well, you need to eat well.”
The company are hoping to use the power of football to help families makes better choices.
The retailer said on their website: “This is a partnership for change.
“With a little help from some much-loved footballing heroes, we’re going to be inspiring you and your family to make healthy eating delicious, easy and fun and to help make the next generation of families healthier.”
On their website, M&S have also included a video on how to make the ‘Southgate Smoothie’ so you can replicate the England manager and enjoy his signature smoothie.
There is a number of other recipes also listed, including ‘Goal-getter breakfast egg muffins’ and ‘pitch-perfect blueberry and banana pancakes’ which are well worth a try.
The video ends with the slogan ‘Eat Well, Play Well’ and that is an important part of the campaign.
Eat Well is a health seal of approval which appears on thousands of M&S products, making it easier to be healthy.
The Eat Well flower is given to products that meet nutritional criteria developed by the nutritionists in consultation with the British Nutrition Foundation.
Each product has a health benefit and they all support a balanced diet so you can feel confident in what you are eating.
The partnership can help families become healthier and can possibly allow people to follow in the footsteps of Raheem Sterling, Andy Robertson, Gareth Bale and Stuart Dallas.
