Eat for Goals! Is a cookery app available in English and Spanish which give young people the opportunity to cook the same heart-healthy meals as some of the world’s top footballers including Cristiano Ronaldo and Paul Pogba.
Eat for Goals! Encourages young people to eat healthily and lead an active lifestyle, in order to reduce their risk of heart disease and stroke.
Once the app is downloaded, young people aged 7+ are encouraged to ‘score a goal’ to see recipes from 11 of their favourite football legends. Each player shares what he or she loves to eat and gives the recipes for main courses, snacks and deserts that can easily be prepared with a child and complement a healthy balanced diet.
As well as seeing what football stars like to eat, the app also provides interesting food facts and step-by-step instructions, making it easy for even the less-experienced to make delicious, balanced meals in no time at all. The Eat for Goals! App is a fun way to encourage young people to be physically active and eat a balanced diet from an early age. Healthy young people lead to healthy adults and healthy adults lead to healthy families and communities.
Eat for Goals! Was originally created as a book under the patronage of UEFA, World Heart Federation and the European Commission. It proved so successful that the Eat for Goals! App was developed in English and Spanish.
