Famous Foodies Fire Up To Rant

Rude Health’s Speakers’ Corner is set to create quite a stir as eminent epicureans and celebrated chefs step on to the soapbox and up to the microphone to rant at Real Food Festival on Friday 8th May between 12 noon - 1pm at Stand P117. Come and hear thelow down on the latest food issues from those in the know.
Rounding up the rants will be the most vocal female in the British food industry, Food Lover, Henrietta Green. We can see the sparks flying already. It’s sure to be a spectacle -as long as Nick relinquishes the hay bale; we’ve got a cattle prong just in case!
Hecklers welcome. The more vocal the better.
If you can’t make it to the Real Food Festival on Friday, the rants will be recorded and uploaded to the Rude Health website www.rudehealth.com
Cattle prong or similar poking device will not be used on anyone apart from Nick- he’s used to it.

First up will be Rude Health’s own relentless ranter Nick Barnard,
followed by the likes of Independent on Sunday forager and Slow
Food UK founder Wendy Fogarty, Chris Young from the Real Bread
Campaign and farming crusader Graham Harvey.
Find out if food writer Tim Hayward will be all fire and knives whilst
author-blogger extraordinaire Simon Majumdar riles against the
heinous fat chip. Mexican-food marvel Thomasina Miers and
St John’s Trevor Gulliver, a notorious prince amongst ranters, will
also be voicing their passions.

Which is the most Angelic Cereal?

Rude Health might be a little cheeky, but their ‘no added salt or sugar’ breakfasts aren’t in the
recently revealed Cereal Offenders line-up.
The latest Which? Report states that 31 out of 100 cereals surveyed contain more than four teaspoons of sugar per portion. Whilst the nation wakes up to the news that a number of popular cereals contain more sugar than a bowl of ice-cream, those tucking into a bowl of Rude Health cereal can feel smugly virtuous.
Rude Health’s range of organic muesli and porridge is angelically healthy, with no added salt or sugar, or any other nasty additives for that matter. Made with wholegrains and sustainably-sourced ingredients, Rude Health breakfasts are wholesome, yummy and lots of fun.
Camilla Barnard, Rude Health’s co-founder and marketing director says “The salt, sugar and fat levels in cereals are only part of the story. If you are eating breakfast for energy, to keep you going and for general health then you need to look at the benefits too. Many highly processed cereals will leave you hungry and tempted to snack. The best choices for breakfast are muesli and porridge.”
Sue Davies, Which? Chief Policy Adviser said in the report: “Breakfast is important, and some cereals deserve their healthy image”. Rude Health doesn’t like to boast, but their halo is looking rather well polished of late.
