Ways to Get Involved

Healthy Harold partners with Bakers Delight's Healthy Solutions range

Tuesday, 17 Oct 2023

Life Ed and its iconic mascot, Healthy Harold, is partnering with family-owned and run Bakers Delight to empower children and families across Australia to make healthier choices, in line with Bakers Delight’s Healthy Solutions range.

Bringing together two of the most trusted, community-focused organisations, this partnership aims to educate children on where their food comes from, the importance of whole grains, and the key nutrients they provide such as protein, carbohydrate and fibre.

We really love supporting our community and are thrilled to be partnering with Life Ed, so we can help more kids make healthier choices.

We have been feeding Aussie families for over 40 years and can’t wait to start educating kids on where their ingredients come from today, so we can help them have a happier and healthier tomorrow.
Elise Gillespie, Bakers Delight Joint CEO

Like all of Life Ed’s programs, this collaboration will help teach Aussie children critical thinking skills as this is the key ingredient in delivering education that truly embeds learning and gives kids the confidence to make positive choices into the future.

This will be done through initiatives like the Growing Good Grains Grants Program which will launch in 2024, encouraging early learning centres, childcare centres, kindergartens and primary schools to educate young children about the origins of healthy foods through growing their own gardens. It will also deliver material for teachers and parents, to help them find Healthy Solutions through resources like curriculum-aligned lesson plans and healthy recipe video tutorials.

Bakers Delight has been supporting Australian communities for over 40 years, just as Healthy Harold has been supporting Aussie kids in developing critical life skills for over 40 years.

The strength in this collaboration is in our shared purpose to empower children and families to make heathier choices by working with communities to embed change and encourage healthy habits. Afterall, they say ‘it takes a village to raise a child’, and our more than 130 Educators that work with over 4,000 schools and preschools a year can attest to how this whole-of-community approach makes a real difference.
