About Get Set to Eat Fresh

Get Set to Eat Fresh is an education programme with a difference. Our free, curriculum-linked resources use Team GB athletes to inspire students aged 5-14 to cook and eat healthy, fresh food. 

Our resources

Our resources are packed with a wide variety of flexible, curriculum-linked content. Including films, downloadable student sheets and lesson plans alongside online content for students, teachers and families (such as our Seasonal Produce profiles or Quick Quizzes), the Get Set to Eat Fresh resources have been designed to allow you to pick and choose activities to suit your lesson, class and wider school community. 

The resources cover a range of topics, from cooking, nutrition and science to international foods and cultures. For instance, in Homegrown Cooking students choose a local Team GB athlete using our special Interactive Map and plan and prepare a meal for them. In Eat Well with Team GB, students discover what it means to eat healthily as a young person and as an elite athlete by creating their own eatwell plates and writing nutritional advice for a Team GB hero. Or you can encourage the whole school to get involved with Get Set to Eat Fresh’s Celebration of Food week and by running your own Food Celebration Event.

Design a Bag competition

 To help improve healthy eating habits and launch the next phase of Get Set to Eat Fresh, Aldi and Team GB are launching the Design a Bag competition, challenging young people aged 5–14 to get creative and design a reusable Bag for Life that will inspire others to eat fresh fruit and vegetables. 

Winners of the competition will see their bags in Aldi stores nationwide and receive £50 of vouchers to spend in store. Plus, the whole school will receive a special visit from a Team GB athlete and £200 of Aldi vouchers to stock up on kitchen equipment and fresh fruit and veg.

What’s more, each week competition entries will be entered into a weekly prize draw to be in with a chance of winning £50 worth of Aldi vouchers to buy fresh ingredients or cooking equipment for the winner’s school.

The competition is open to students aged 5–14 in England, Wales and Scotland from 8 February–4 May 2018. For more information about the Design a Bag competition, including our Entry Template and Cover Sheet for Entries, supporting resources and T&Cs, please visit: www.getseteatfresh.co.uk/designabag. We can't wait to see your entries!
