The founder of Be SEEDsational, Anne Roze, and our fabulous ambassador, Professor Elizabeth More, met with Lisa Eisman from Northside Radio for a chat about what the Be SEEDsational campaign is all about, where you can find us, and how you can get involved!

Anne and Elizabeth had a fantastic time with Lisa, and it was great to be able to explain what inspired the whole campaign and why it’s so important not only for Australians, but for people from all backgrounds, and that’s why there is such a strong focus on providing multi-lingual resources.

Some of the energetic songs that we’ve made as part of the campaign, including 'Move Seasonably' and 'Yummie’s Mission' also got a chance to be showcased in the interview, so we hope you enjoy them! If you’d like to hear more, look out for upcoming workshops, events or other performances, right here on our website so you can get involved in the healthy movement!

Be SEEDsational with Northside Radio

The Be SEEDsational team visited Northside Radio to talk about how the campaign supports our local communities, how you can join in the movement and become SEEDsational, and how we can all work together to support each other in Australia!

The interview helped us reach out to all of you, and it was great that we got to share the recent journey of our Seasonal Heroes, Anna Guz and Alan Chamberlain, who completed the Three Passes trek in the Everest region of Nepal. It was very exciting to follow their progress through December and January, and they were motivated throughout their journey by all the fundraising that Rural Aid and our local Australian farmers received!

For those of who didn’t know us and might be interested in changing your lifestyle towards a healthier direction, it was great to be able to talk about our aims of sharing healthy, educational resources and being open to people from all backgrounds joining our cause.

Making Be SEEDsational Accessible to All!

Eat and live seasonably!
Join our educational fun workshops held as part of the Be SEEDsational campaign, based on the 'Seasonal Warriors:  Discover the Magic' children’s graphical novel supported by businesses across a range of industries, to address both local health outcomes for Australians, and global issues such as obesity, food availability, sustainability, and food wastage.

Move seasonably with our song and dance routines!
Also held at our Be SEEDsational workshops are song and dance routines which incorporate many of our original songs, all including key messages of eating, living and moving seasonably and healthily to encourage long-term well-being! A key hit is the "Move Seasonably" song, which the Yummy Times team has performed publicly as well, and is all about moving seasonably to help foster physical and mental health! Kids can sing and dance to these songs alongside our educators and lovable mascot, Yummie!

Meet Our SEEDsational Winners

Congratulations to Lane Cove West Public School – one of the major prize winners in our most recent competition!  More and more schools are becoming SEEDsational and winning awesome prizes, including copies of our ‘Seasonal Warriors:  Discover the Magic’ book and its specially-designed corresponding teacher's resources, and massive Dymocks vouchers to top up their library collection.  If you want your school to be SEEDsational, keep an eye out for our next local event!

Lane Cove is Officially SEEDsational!

In mid-2017, Yummy Times Group ran our ‘Be SEEDsational’ campaign in Lane Cove.  Our mascot, Yummie, visited several local primary schools to donate fresh produce and copies of our ‘Be SEEDsational: Discover the Magic’ book, and talk to kids about the importance of healthy eating.  We also reviewed a popular local restaurant to communicate its healthiest options to the community, teamed up with Dymocks Lane Cove to promote our first book and run a competition supported by local sponsors.

We celebrated the final day of the competition in Lane Cove Plaza, partnering with the KIIS 106.5FM Street Team for fun activities and games including giant Connect Four, and Yummie danced along to our original music!  We gave away recipes, books, carrots and 180 balloons.  And of course, our competition came to a close.

We would like to say a big THANK YOU to everyone who participated in the campaign; from the Lane Cove business who promoted the competition and donated awesome prizes (Dymocks, McGrath, Lodge Tapas, Bakers Delight and About Life), to the local schools who partnered with us, and everyone who participated in our final day event, bought our book and entered our competition - thanks to you, Lane Cove is officially SEEDsational!

CONGRATULATIONS to all of the lucky winners.  We hope you're enjoying your SEEDsational prize packs and making the most of what your community has to offer.

Song & Dance Performance at Strathfield Spring Festival

Move your body seasonably with our new song "Move Seasonably"!

A warm Spring day welcomed the Yummy Times team to this event allowing the team to meet the wonderful community and council from this suburb. The Yummy Times team performed their new song,  ‘Move Seasonably’ which is all about encouraging children and families to move seasonably to improve the well-being of their body and mind, and stay healthy overall! The song was accompanied by an entertaining choreographed dance with Yummy Times' mascot, Yummie.  As well as this, Yummie was able to get a couple of ‘selfies’ with the children and some adults to brighten their day even more.

The annual Royal Easter Show held at Sydney Showground is always a highlight of the year, ever since the first show in 1823. A prestigious event that brings together agricultural themes, rural country vibes, and loads of amusement park fun, this two week long affair is always highly anticipated by everyone old and young.

This year, Yummy Times Group was honoured to be a part of this grand event, and was a special part of the Preview for Primary Schools on Wednesday 16 March 2016. Our adorable team mascot Yummie was delighted to meet the 700 primary school students that were lucky enough to get entry into the limited event. The students, teachers, and volunteers were all cheerfully greeted by Yummie and the team, and were even invited to sing-a-long to the ‘Be SEEDsational: It’s Your Time’ with the mascot! The school children readily took up the challenge, and sang an admirable performance to their peers.

With a small stand for our book presentation, students were also given the opportunity to enter our ‘Win-a-Book’ competition. Yummy Times Group’s newly published book, is aimed to be an entertaining, yet educational tool to help growing children lead healthy lifestyles. It is the first volume in the series ‘Seasonal Warriors’, a compelling tale of magical discoveries revolving around educational themes of sustainability, healthy eating and self-identity.

As part of the event, the students took part in hands-on activities and numerous exhibits to learn about various aspects of farming and food production, to support and raise awareness for healthy lifestyles and fresh produce. With such a beautiful and educational message, Yummy Times Group couldn’t be a prouder contributor of the Sydney Royal Easter Show 2016. Yummy Times Group is proud to be a part of this exciting event together with the following exhibitors including Woolworths, Nestle Healthy Active Kids, AIS, Sydney Water and Ozharvest.

Be on a look out for more updates and details of the Easter Show 2016.
