Change4Life launches Supermeals drive amid criticism of brand links
Change4Life, the Government's anti-obesity campaign, has unveiled its traditional New Year marketing campaign, which this year is themed around cooking healthy food on budget.
Change4Life: launches supermeals campaign
The 'Supermeals' campaign will send four million recipe leaflets to families that have already signed up to the Change4Life campaign.
In addition, supermarkets Aldi, Asda and the Co-op will be offering discounts to the recipe ingredients, such as fruit, vegetables and fish.
Chef Ainsley Harriott has also been signed up by Change4Life to create a cookbook promoting healthy dishes that can be created for under £5.
He also features in a series of cooking tutorial films that will be posted on the Change4Life website.
The campaign is being supported by a national press advertising campaign.
But the anti-obesity campaign has come in for criticism in some quarters. Diane Abbott, the shadow public health minister, branded 'Supermeals' a "glorified advertisement for big business".
