Professor Elizabeth More supports the Be SEEDsational campaign and believes that the work undertaken by the organisation is helping to develop a better future for all, aligning with many of her own causes. She also acknowledges the role that children play in shaping the future, and the importance of ensuring high quality education for children in their academic and extra-curricular areas.
Professor More supports the message contained within the 'Seasonal Warriors:  Discover the Magic' graphic novel and within the wider 'Be SEEDsational' campaign.
You can find out more about the book by visiting the 'Discover the Magic' page.

I have followed Be SEEDsational since its inception, and fully support Professor More’s statement and feelings about Be SEEDsational, and that the more children and their families who become involved, the stronger the message grows to create a healthier life for all. There are so many messages hitting our mailboxes on a daily basis, but the good ones like those from Be SEEDsational  should be emphasised and promoted by those who understand what healthy eating and living really means.
