Eat for Goals

Soccer players are not always rich and spoiled adolescents, sometimes they do care.

Eat for Goals! is about good food, cooking and football. It has been created to encourage young people to be more conscious of living active lifestyles and eating well.

Eat for Goals! was created under the patronage of Union of European Football Associations (UEFA) , World Heart Federation and the European Commission.

Famous international football role models were invited to present their approach to healthy food by describing the recipe of their preferred dish, sharing with readers what they love to eat.

A total 13 recipes are presented with the aim of educating youth and their families on the interdependency between a balanced healthy diet and performance. Each player shares with the readers what he or she loves to eat and gives the recipe for his or her favourite dish.

Amongst others participating soccer players are: Miroslav Klose, Ruud Van Nistelrooy, Therri Henry and Steven Gerrard.
