Here, parents, children and families can access a range of fun activities, healthy eating hints, tips and recipes enabling Beko to inspire, raise awareness and educate families on the importance of a healthy, balanced lifestyle.

As a mother herself, Lisa Faulkner relates closely to the campaign and said, “Healthy eating and nutrition has always been an important part of my lifestyle which I have passed down to my daughter.

Beko also showcased its diverse products at EuroCucina and guests were treated to a demonstration of the brand’s wide range of innovative appliances.

Today Alessandro shared his expertise and tips on healthy living, showing his support for the campaign with an aim to get parents rethinking their food and meal choices. He comments: “I am thrilled to be working with Beko on this extremely important global initiative and am really excited to debut my latest recipes to help communicate the importance of healthy eating as part of Beko’s ‘Eat Like A Pro’ campaign. As both a chef and a father I am a passionate advocate of healthy eating, and therefore this campaign and everything it stands for is very close to my heart. I’m a firm believer that nutritious food needn’t fall short on taste… or excitement!”

Chief Marketing Officer, Zeynep Yalım Uzun also attended the event in Milan and spoke about healthy living. She explained how Beko’s latest innovations inspire healtly eating and explained, “If current trends continue the number of overweight or obese infants and young children globally will increase to 70 million by 2025. Childhood obesity is a global issue and at Beko, we are striving to tackle this crisis through using innovative technologies that make healthy eating easier whilst raising awareness at the same time. From refrigerators that keep fruit and vegetables fresh for up to 30 days and a range of small appliances that can make healthy smoothies in no time at all, Beko has a wide range of appliances featuring smart and helpful technologies to help families eat healthier at home. Beko believes in bringing people meaningful solutions as a partner who understands and helps them in their everyday lives.”

Dra.Antonia Lizárraga was on hand to discuss the importance of nutrition and a balanced diet. She said, “to keep the players in top form, they must sustatin a general healthy eating pattern which helps to support the needs of a fit, energetic and lean player. Children must also have balanced diets and must be energised on a daily basis through proper nutrition to keep fit and strong. Beko is helping to enable kids and parents on a global scale through its innovative approach and campaign, sustaining a better living for each generation.”

Beko’s aim is simple; to help reduce childhood obesity through prevention and education. The global Eat Like A Pro campaign is set to inspire families and children around the world to lead healthier lifestyles and show that good nutrient is key to tackling this worldwide problem.
