|Do You Know Chiswick’s Greenest Dad?|
Ethical food company Turnham Green awards the best eco-behaved fathers in W4
The winners of Chiswick's Greenest Dad competition were announced last weekend at Green Days.
Prizes were presented by Michelin star chef (and Great British Menu finalist) Chris Horridge alongside Torin (wonder-man) Douglas.
Joint-winners of the under 5yrs were Georgia Winter & Ella Chandler pictured right.
The runner-up of the 5-8yrs Benedict Farley is pictured below right and the winner of the 9-12 years was Lucy Owen.
Turnham Green's 2009 Green Dad Campaign this year focused on healthy eating choices.
Stephen Fry said, “Turnham Green might just do what their name suggests. If you can get a busy Daddy thinking about the way they're using and spending and burning then you really can change the world. And without nagging or bullying too. Brilliant."
The initiative encouraged children to adopt a greener approach to life, and in turn, influence their parents’ eco-behaviour.
The theme this year was healthy eating choices which is a particularly poignant topic given the UK’s incidence of diabetes is now increasing at a faster rate than the US.
With chef and nutrition training behind her, Turnham Green’s founder, Natalie is particularly passionate about this year’s campaign. “Healthy eating choices are a long term game which can sometimes feel quite intangible, this campaign aims to give children an immediate celebration of making healthy food choices.
If we can inspire just one child to assess their dad’s eating choices for good health the campaign will have been a success.”
