A study showed that the campaign not only understood but also successful. The figures of consumption were significantly increased: 35% of respondents bought more fruits and vegetables and during the last 12 months increased the volume purchased fruit and vegetables by up to 26% with respect to the reference year 2006.Kim Gevaert was the figurehead of the campaign: a young and athletic image, a young mother and little known to anyone with a heart for the sport.And even doctors know that people encourage healthy eating is not the "imposition" of a diet, but by intrinsic motivation, their own choice.
