M&S Taste Buds range developed with nutrition experts at GOSH and M&S
26 Apr 2021, noon
M&S has relaunched its children's Taste Buds food range, with 5p per pack sold going to GOSH Charity.
The range, which is for children aged 4-10, was developed with nutrition experts at Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH) and M&S. It features 23 tasty products – from “Little Fishies” to “Hot Dog Pasta”.
“It's so important that children eat a healthy diet so they get all the nutrients they need to grow and develop to the best of their potential,” says Clare Thornton-Wood, a paediatric dietician at GOSH.
“We have been working with M&S to help create the products in the Taste Buds range and make sure they are all healthy and tasty - I hope that children enjoy eating them.”
Helping to support seriously ill children across the UK
Money raised through Taste Buds will help fund the hospital’s urgent needs.
Over the last decade, M&S has donated more than £3million to GOSH Charity.
This money, raised through a variety of fundraising activities such as the Sparks loyalty reward scheme, has helped fund pioneering research into child nutrition and paid for a bedroom in GOSH's Mittal Children’s Medical Centre.
Some of the funds have also gone towards vital support services, such as GOSH’s renowned Play team.
M&S also supported GOSH through the pandemic, by providing items such as fresh food and meals for GOSH staff.
A massive thank you
GOSH Charity’s Director of Fundraising, Liz Tait, has said thank you to M&S for its ongoing support to the charity.
“We are really excited about the Taste Buds range that has been developed with nutrition experts at GOSH and would like to say a massive thank you to M&S for all of their invaluable support. We look forward to seeing what is to come from this fantastic partnership in the future."
The taste test!
Eager to hear what children think of it, we asked Sam, Daniel and Maia - all treated at GOSH - for their thoughts. From "delicious!" to "crunchy and yummy", they seemed to enjoy tucking in!
