What to eat now: Quorn’s Nuggets of Change campaign

With the summer holidays now officially over, Quorn, the global market leader in sustainable protein, took a trip to the Andre household to catch up with Peter, Junior and Princess to find out how they were feeling about this year’s back to school period and hear their pledges to each other; based on what they had learnt during lockdown.

The video (above)  is part of Quorn’s Nuggets of Change campaign which encourages people to take a moment to reflect on the small, positive changes which may have come about as a result of recent events, including lockdown. As kids go back to school and routines get even busier, whether it’s having one meat free meal a week or spending a little more time with the family, small changes can have a powerful and lasting impact on ourselves, those around us and the planet.

Whilst whipping up a delicious Quorn Crispy Nuggets meal, the trio agreed they had spent more time together as a family during lockdown, with Princess saying she will continue this going forward. Meanwhile, Junior gave his word to keep his room tidy, after he was taught the ropes by his younger sister on how to peel vegetables ‘properly’. Peter kept the humour alive and was on hand to tell some classic Dad Jokes, much to Princess and Junior’s disapproval. Luckily for them he has now claimed he will stop telling them!

Preparing a vegetarian meal and eating meat-free is no novelty for the Andre family. In fact, Peter recalls that when he was growing up, he used to have veggie nights two or three times a week and he also acknowledges how meat-free food is good for the environment, as well as your health.

Peter has since said: “During the last few months, I’m sure we’re not the only family who have made changes to our everyday lives. As well as creating a lifetime of special memories, we’ve also adopted new habits and new routines. On the surface, these may seem quite small, however they have actually had a big impact on us, which is why we were eager to make these pledges so we can continue with our positive steps even as life gets busier. Eating meat-free at least once a week is an example of a small positive thing we already do and trust me when I say it’s much yummier nowadays than it was when I was a kid!”
