F.C EMMEN – EMMEN HEALTHY

FC Emmen provide a healthy breakfast for more than 200 people! The programme called ”Emmen Healthy” aims to improve the eating habits of children and their parents.

In the southwest of the province Drenthe, it’s unfortunately normal for many children to have an unhealthy breakfast, or no breakfast at all, before going to school. Therefore FC Emmen and Naoberschap United have put a particular focus on this by organising a healthy breakfast in the stadium, in cooperation with M&GEZOND (‘Emmen Healthy’).

Once every two months, a hundred children and a hundred parents from the municipality of Emmen are invited for a healthy breakfast in the FC Emmen stadium, De Oude Meerdijk. They are joined by the first team players of FC Emmen and at least one player or staff member will join a table. Players start the conversation about the importance of a healthy breakfast and there is plenty of time to get some autographs from players and staff.

After the healthy breakfast, children are asked to make a breakfast selfie which is shared with FC Emmen and Naoberschap United, who print the picture and place it on the photo wall in the stadium.

The healthy breakfast with the first team is an initiative by FC Emmen, Naoberschap United, JOGG and M&GEZOND!
