Fuel Station urges local schools to adapt healthy eating initiative
Liverpool-based healthy foods company, Fuel Station, has backed Jamie Oliver’s petition calling for improved food education in schools around the world.
The company, who struck a deal with a Cardinal Heenan Catholic High in December to supply pupils with its range of its healthy meals, snacks and shakes – say the key to tackling obesity in children is by teaching and implementing healthy eating in schools.
The Liverpool firm provide Cardinal Heenan with dishes like protein shakes, protein bars and their signature breakfast dish, protein porridge. They say their products, which have been hugely popular since becoming available in January, provide students with a healthy and balanced diet.
The health brand recently won the backing of an NHS Liverpool Trust to supply employees with an array of their healthy eating products. They also offer a ‘delivered diet’ service that is available to purchase online.
Fuel Station founder Kurt Wilson, who established the company in 2012 with his brother Jay, says other schools on Merseyside should consider the healthy eating initiative to help reduce the obesity epidemic.
“There seems to be a problem with teenage obesity and how to combat it. School pupils who use our products all benefit from using our products on a daily basis. I feel we can provide a cheap, practical solution with our offering, so perhaps other schools in the city should take the idea on board.”
