QMS in healthy lifestyle drive

Quality Meat Scotland (QMS) has teamed up with Street Soccer Scotland to launch a new publication to help promote a healthy lifestyle to Scotland’s youth.

The Eat Well, Play Well booklet will promote eating red meat as part of a healthy diet. It was launched with the help of ex-Celtic and Scotland captain Tom Boyd at an event for young footballers in Glasgow.

Jennifer Robertson, health and education co-ordinator with QMS, said: “QMS undertakes a range of health and education activities to help people see the benefits of eating a healthy, balanced diet and living an active lifestyle.

“The tips on regular exercise and achieving a balanced diet that are included in this booklet should make readers feel better and give them heaps of energy to tackle life’s challenges both on and off the football pitch.”

David Duke, founder and CEO Street Soccer Scotland, said: “For the past five years, Street Soccer Scotland has tackled social exclusion and poverty head-on by using football as a vehicle for social change. We are very proud to be supported by Scotch Beef PGI, and everyone here believes that it is vital to ‘fuel your body’ to not only achieve your best in sport, but also to lead an active, healthy life.

“In partnership with Scotch Beef PGI, we have created this booklet for our players and young people in order to highlight the importance of eating the right food as part of a healthy diet. We are very lucky to have some of our famous football friends in the booklet, sharing their favourite recipes, as well as top tips on healthy eating and information about Street Soccer Scotland.”
