Birds Eye Cast A Spell For Kids With Merlin
Frozen food brand Birds Eye has announced a major on-pack promotion in partnership with Europe’s entertainment group, Merlin Entertainments.

The ‘Kids have fun for free’ campaign, that features on special packs of top Birds Eye family products, will offer free entry for one child at over 30 Merlin Entertainments attractions across the UK.

Attractions include Legoland Windsor, Sea Life Centres and Warwick Castle.

The partnership is a key initiative for Birds Eye in 2015, encouraging shoppers to engage with the frozen aisle.

Running until the end of October the promotion is predicted to sell over 31 million special packs including family favourites such as Chicken Dippers, Fish Fingers and Field Fresh Garden Peas.

To claim free child entry with a full-paying adult, consumers cut out the coupon from the pack and present it at the Merlin attraction of their choice.

Coupons can be used until the end of 2016, allowing consumers the freedom to redeem throughout the year, particularly at attractions such as Madame Tussauds and Sea Life centres that are open all-year round.

The partnership is being supported by a £1.7 million campaign across TV, in-store and online.

TV advertising will run for seven weeks from mid-August, alongside a three-month in-store campaign with key promotional activity taking place in Tesco, Asda, Sainsbury’s, Morrison’s, Iceland and Waitrose stores.

Birds Eye Marketing Director Steve Chantry said: “We understand just how tricky it is to keep children entertained over the summer holidays and often throughout the year.

“We recognise that this also comes hand-in-hand with keeping mealtimes exciting, especially for picky palates, and are thrilled to be partnering with Merlin Entertainments, which we feel can help us offer even better value to our customers.

“As a company, we are committed to meeting the evolving needs of our consumers, and we will continue innovating to ensure we meet these demands. Merlin is a company that shares our brand values and is set to help us drive sales and in-store purchase.”

Birds Eye’s partnership with Merlin Entertainments supports the frozen food brand’s vision to drive purchase incentive beyond promotions.

Emma Woods, Merlin Global Marketing Director, said:

“We are delighted to be linking with one of the UK’s best loved quality family food brands for the very first time.

“Merlin has over 30 great attractions in the UK and there is no doubt mums and kids alike will love this ‘Kids Have Fun For Free’ offer on Birds Eye packs, and the chance to have a fun day out with us this summer.

“The partnership between Merlin and Birds Eye is very exciting, and we hope that this promotion will be the start of a long and successful relationship.”

Harry's Kicks Off #LoveSummer With Route Chip To Chip
In light of the recent report indicating that UK Staycations have reached a seven year high, coupled with the fact that nothing says summer quite like fish and chips on the beach, Harry Ramsden's, the brand most closely associated with the nation's favourite dish is taking to the road.

Over the course of the next four weeks, as part of its #lovesummer campaign, the brand's mascot Harry the Haddock will be travelling across the country in a fully branded Harry Ramsden's Campervan, to visit seaside towns where the brand's fish and chips are enjoyed by millions of locals, day-trippers and holiday makers annually.

Kicking off in Bournemouth this weekend, where Harry's boasts the World's Largest Fish and Chip Restaurant, the Harry's Campervan will travel almost 700 miles on 'Route Chip to Chip', making stops in Eastbourne, Great Yarmouth, Scarborough, Blackpool, Worthing and Brighton before returning to Bournemouth at the end of August.

During the visits to the towns, as well as meeting with holidaymakers and enjoying summer fun with competitions and giveaways, Harry the Haddock will also visit with representatives from the local charities which have been selected by local staff to benefit from in store fundraising between now and 1 December 2015.

Joe Teixeira, CEO of Harry Ramsden's comments: “With more and more families continuing to holiday in the UK, summer is undeniably the season when we record our highest footfall levels so it is the ideal time for us as a brand to get 'up close and personal' with our customers. Our #lovesummer campaign, and 'Route Chip to Chip' specifically, offers us the ideal opportunity to further engage with our customers face to face and add some extra fun to their summer break. “

Harry Ramsden's #lovesummer will also be complemented off and online with exclusive competitions, offers and giveaways to ensure that all customers can take part in the campaign.

Organix Launches Toddler #LoveGoodFood Campaign
Childhood obesity is on the increase and the UK faces a growing crisis concerning children's health and diet preferences. According to new research carried out by Leeds Beckett University, nearly a quarter of British children under the age of five are overweight or obese – the second-highest proportion of overweight under-fives in 28 countries studied.

The toddler years are a key time to influence diets and a time when it is possible to establish lifelong healthy eating habits and a love of food. According to The Healthy Start Alliance Manifesto, good nutrition in the early years contributes to good health and wellbeing in infant years and beyond.

Organix believes children deserve to eat well and that food for children should be healthy, tasty, and labelled honestly, so parents know what they are feeding their families. They know it can be difficult to make good food choices and avoid the junk when the information can be confusing, so Organix helps make sense of it all with simple and clear information, practical advice and its range of Goodies - organic toddler foods with no unnecessary or artificial ingredients.

As your baby grows into a toddler, it's a time of rapid change and extraordinary development – a time when diet habits and preferences start to form. That's why Organix is launching its #LoveGoodFood campaign for toddlers, designed to help little ones love good food in these early years, so they grow up to be healthy, little food explorers.

With the help of children's food expert Lucy Thomas, who runs fun workshops encouraging children to love fruit and vegetables, and Dr Frankie Phillips, Nutrition Advisor to Organix and a registered dietitian specialising in feeding babies and toddlers, Organix is launching its Little Book of Good Food – Toddlers & Families. It's packed with advice and tips for parents on providing a healthy diet for little ones as they continue their exciting journey with food through the early years and beyond. You can download your free copy here:

Organix is also launching a series of Love Good Food short videos,with Lucy and a group of toddlers exploring, enjoying and sharing the wonderful world of fruit and vegetables, from broccoli to bananas, through play, rhymes, song and storytelling. You can watch them here: #lovegoodfood

Just when you think you know what your toddler likes to eat, and you are confident they are eating a healthy, balanced diet, your little one's growing independence with food means they might take matters into their own hands – perhaps refusing to eat at mealtimes or becoming fussy about food.

Inspiring children to enjoy fruit and veg is Lucy Thomas' passion. As author and founder of 'Mange Tout', her methods have been recommended by experts from Great Ormond Street Hospital.

Lucy says, “It can be challenging for parents to get their little ones to eat fruit and veg, however, toddlers are naturally curious about the world around them so helping them learn about the colours, the funny shapes, smells and textures of a variety of fruit and vegetables in a fun environment and away from mealtime can really help get them excited about food. As parents we tend to think about food as just eating, but we forget the simple pleasure that children can get from peeling their own banana for example, enjoying how it feels to peel off the skin.”

According to Dr Frankie Phillips, Nutrition Advisor to Organix, encouraging and starting to make healthier food choices in the toddler years will make it much easier later on for children to eat a good balance of foods.

So what does a healthy diet for very young children look like and what's the right portion size? Dr Frankie Phillips suggests following these tips:

Regular healthy meals and snacks – toddlers need to snack as their tummies aren't big enough to take on board enough energy and nutrients from just three meals a day.

Plenty of choice and balance – a varied diet containing a selection of foods will provide the essential nutrients they need.

Each day aim for 5 portions of starchy foods, 5 portions of fruit and vegetables, 3 portions of dairy foods and 2 portions of meat, fish, eggs, nuts and pulses (3 if vegetarian).

For little ones growing up, Organix award winning Goodies toddler snacks are great for all occasions. There's a variety of fun shapes and exciting flavours to discover, in just the right portion size for little ones of 12months+, all wrapped up in bright and colourful packs with activities to encourage play. Choose from soft oaty bars, corn puffs, biscuits, crackers, rice cakes and fruit snacks, they all come with the Organix No Junk Promise, a commitment to never adding anything unnecessary or artificial and parents can check as the labelling on our foods is always clear, open and honest.
