Eat for Goals! App

Eat for Goals! App

Eat for Goals! is a cookery app available in English and Spanish which gives young people and families the information they need to cook the same heart-healthy meals as some of the world’s top footballers including Cristiano Ronaldo, Paul Pogba and Lotta Schelin.

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 recipe for his or her favourite dish.

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 available via an internet browser in English and Spanish language features a total of 17 healthy options, including recipes for main courses, snacks and deserts, that can easily be prepared with a child and complement a healthy and balanced diet.
