Nutri Troops…. An Olympic Legacy
The Nutri Troops were founded by GB Volleyball Player Peter Bakare who represented Team GB at the London 2012 Olympic Games. Peter studied animation at Sheffield Hallam University and went on to write a script for Channel 4’s Skins.
Former Olympian Peter Bakare swapped the volleyball court for the school playground in order to challenge the children of the North East to change their diets and live healthier lives.
Nutri Troops is based on the story of the Olympic mascots and what happens during that four-year cycle between games. It is about the ongoing battle that exists between those characters fighting to promote healthy eating and those encouraging us to eat unhealthy foods. It is a fun approach to tackling a very serious problem and the children are rewarded for taking part in activities at home and at completing challenges and competitive spirit through digital gaming brings out the healthy heroes in children.
