Treat your taste buds!

The site includes plenty of information about nutrition, which is massively important for Chelsea’s Premier League stars. It’s also vital for you, as having a good diet is crucial for anyone who wants to stay healthy.

If you take a look at the site, you’ll be able to pick up some great tips and recipes from the Chelsea team. So whether you like the sound of Gary Cahill’s Super Blues Smoothie or Juan Mata’s chilli con carne, there’s something to satisfy everyone’s taste buds!

The right diet always starts with a good breakfast, which is why Chelsea has been running a special breakfast club programme in schools across south west London.

With the support of the Chelsea FC Foundation, kids at schools across the area are now given a nutritious breakfast each morning. 

The schools say that punctuality, attendance and behaviour all improve once the kids start
attending the breakfast clubs on a regular basis. They also say that pupils are more ready to learn and settle into the school day after they have had something nourishing to eat and drink. 


A good start

The breakfasts are made up of cereal, toast, fruit, and dairy foods like milk and yoghurt. This is based on the Chelsea first team’s diet because the programme is designed by the same people – called nutritionists – who make sure that Chelsea’s Premier League legends are eating the best food for a winning performance.

Without a doubt breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Fruit and cereal provide a continuous release of energy and eating them regularly improves concentration and mental functioning. In addition, vitamins, minerals and calcium are essential for growing bodies. That’s why a healthy breakfast is a good habit to get into at an early age.

Teachers have said that children really are more focused in class after a good breakfast, and that concentration levels have improved. 

“Since the clubs began the pupils are at school on time – some are even early!” said
one teacher.
