Win personal coaching from Rachael Burford, Harlequins and England Rugby Player.

Fruit Bowl the irresistible, intensely fruity kids snacks, have launched a campaign to get children active and eating more healthily, inspired through sport.

To celebrate, and acknowledge the start of the Six Nations Rugby Tournament, Fruit Bowl are offering primary aged children across England, the chance to win Fruit Bowl snacks for an entire year group, PLUS the Harlequin Ladies and England Rugby player Rachael Burford to come and coach at their school, and a signed rugby ball for the winning child.

Rachael was one of the first women in English history to become a full time professional rugby player in 2006. More than a decade on, and she is far from swinging low…In fact, Rachaels’ chariots are gleaming as she still plays for England, as well as her mentoring, coaching, public speaking and the launch of her “12” and The Burford Academy.

Alice Bream - Brand Manager at Fruit Bowl said “We are thrilled to be working with Rachael as a Fruit Bowl ambassador, affectionately known as a Fruitivator. Rachael is such a mentor in the sport she holds so dear, with her unique insight into teamwork and achievements. Her positive hard-working attitude sits well with the core brand values of Fruit Bowl too.”

Will Greenwood MBE said of Rachael “Whether Rachael is working with children or explaining the intricate laws of the game to current professionals the content is delivered expertly. Great company, ferocious competitor….”

Alice went on to say “Everyone is so excited about the 6 Nations and here at Fruit Bowl, we want to inspire the next generation to eat healthily and try new sports, so having the opportunity to meet such an inspirational Rugby star is a really great prize”
