Struggling to work up the motivation to get back into shape after the festive period? It’s no surprise considering that the average British woman will snack on over 129 packets of crisps, more than 127 chocolate bars, over 77 cakes and more than 133 biscuits in the average year according to the latest research by Hovis. However, never fear, all is not lost and help is at hand! In response to the findings, which showed 55% of the nation’s women want to give up their unhealthy snacking vice, Hovis Wholemeal has launched the ‘Stop Snacking’ Facebook app at www.facebook.com/hovisbakery.
Developed in conjunction with Hovis ambassador and Olympic gold medallist Victoria Pendleton, the app encourages women to try a Hovis Wholemeal breakfast and then set a snack-related challenge in return for daily prizes (including a Mulberry handbag and Tiffany’s jewellery – who could say no to that?!), rewards for completion and a range of recipes and motivational advice.
