STUDENTS discovered the science of healthy eating and exercise from a Olympic Team GB rugby player.

St Paul's C of E Junior School were lucky enough to meet silver medalist, Daniel Bibby as part of Aldi's partnership with Team GB to promote healthy eating.

The Olympic star inspired students at a school assembly, talking about his love for fresh and healthy food following Aldi's recent store opening in Wokingham on July 11.

A hamper of fruit and healthy snacks were also gifted to the school and hopes to inspire students to live healthier lives.

Daniel spoke about how eating healthy helps his extensive training regime as an Olympian and children got the chance to hold his silver medal.

Daniel Bibby, Team GB Olympian, said: “I have had a fantastic time with the children, they were an absolute delight.

"It was great to talk to them about the importance of eating healthily and how it can be fun to prepare your own meals. Hopefully I’ve also managed to inspire the pupils to keep active and try different sports.”

Craig Breadmore, store manager at Aldi said: “Since opening the Wokingham store in July, we’ve had a really successful couple of weeks. It’s been great to meet more of our new customers and share our everyday amazing products with them.

"I am also thrilled that we’ve been able to support a local primary school, St Paul’s C of E Junior School, through our partnership with Team GB.”

The new store in Wokingham store offers Aldi’s exclusive Specially Selected range, weekly fresh meat offers, famous Super 6 fruit and veg and Aldi’s legendary Specialbuys, which will be available every Thursday and Sunday, offering extraordinary value on a wide range of products from electrical items to garden tools.
