Great North Run

Dr Julie Young and students from the Human Nutrition programme at Northumbria University were invited by Nova to take Full of Beans to the Great North Run Pasta Party event on Saturday 5th September in Gateshead. Thousands of people came through the doors to sample the pasta and hear the music while the Full of Beans team provided nutritional advice to the young Go Run for Fun participants and their parents as well as the general public taking part in the weekend activities.

Along with the dozens of apples that were handed out children played with the food models and discussed how to eat for energy and help them run faster, while their parents braved the Tanita and considered their body fat measurements and BMI. A fun day was had by all!
