ITV, Channel 4 And Sky To Launch Health And Wellbeing Initiative

News Image
ITV, Channel 4 and Sky are to launch a health and wellbeing initiative to promote the importance of healthy eating and exercise for kids in a new three-year partnership.

With an airtime investment of £10m, the UK's leading commercial broadcasters aim to reach 90% of UK children and help tackle children’s obesity by showcasing advertising campaigns such as Eat Them To Defeat Them and The Daily Mile. The three main TV sales groups will launch multiple major on-air campaigns from January 2020 with the aim of helping 10 million kids lead healthier lives.

Across ITV, Channel 4, Channel 5 and Sky, the broadcasters will build on the success of the Eat Them To Defeat Them campaign, which has previously run solely on ITV, with an ambition to change behaviour in the long-term and across all communities in the UK. The new Eat Them To Defeat Them campaign will launch first, in February 2020.

Carolyn McCall, CEO of ITV said: "We know that TV has the power to shape culture and change behaviour and nowhere is that more clear or important than with the success and impact of both The Daily Mile and Eat Them to Defeat Them. We’ve been working more widely with Channel 4 and Sky to highlight what TV advertising does to accelerate brands' growth, and combining the power of our platforms and programmes enables us to make a significant difference to children's health."
