Two West Ham United players have been testing out the council’s healthy eating app alongside children in the borough.

The new partnership between Havering Council’s Veggie Run programme and the West Ham United Foundation is the first of its kind and creates a two-pronged approach to educating children in health and well-being.

Since Veggie Run and the West Ham United Foundation collaboration was announced last month, the app has two new players on the leader board.

This week, Adrián and Arthur Masuaku from West Ham United had a chance to play the updated version of Veggie Run.

After avidly playing the game and seeing the benefits for children in the borough, defender Arthur Masuaku placed his score and challenged others saying “Is your score on the leader board?”, with fellow player and goalkeeper Adrián adding “Game On”.

West Ham United Foundation will start delivering the Healthy Hammers six-week programme to 2,400 children in Havering from November 2018, from more than half of the borough’s primary and junior schools.

During this school term, children can win West Ham United Foundation themed prizes, with the top 10 children on the leader board at the end of this half-term each having the chance to win a £25 West Ham United Foundation programme voucher.

Any child currently eating a school catered lunch could also win a visit to the West Ham United Football stadium on November 7.
