Abstract

In response to rising levels of childhood obesity, schools have become an influential environment in the promotion of health behaviours and in particular programmes aimed at increasing children's consumption of fruit and vegetables. A range of UK schoolbased interventions have been developed to target children's fruit and vegetable consumption (Ransley et al, 2007; Wardle, Herrera, Cooke Gibson). One intervention that has been suggested to be particularly effective is the Food Dudes programme.
