Kate Percy's Go Bites
Go Bites
go-bites.com For me, food has to deliver three things: great taste, a big smile from family and friends and the right type of get-up-and-go energy.

How did it all start? I radically altered my family's diet to help my husband, Mark, who was struggling in his training for the New York Marathon. Mark's performance was totally transformed and the whole family felt more energised! I didn't last long watching from the sidelines. I decided to run a marathon myself. And the rest is history!

Since then I've written 3 best-selling ‘Go Faster Food’ books, I'm in-house chef for 220 Triathlon and have also developed an education programme to get kids eating better and moving more.

Oh, and there's Kate Percy's GO BITES of course too!

Our 5 x 2025 mission is for every child, by 2025, to be able to cook 5 simple, nourishing recipes by the time they leave home. What would life be without big, hairy goals!

A senior Weetabix executive was enjoying a family skiing holiday in Switzerland when he discovered a weird and wonderful breakfast created for him by his personal chef. He was so smitten by the intriguing cereal and how it kept him going on the slopes that he brought the recipe back to our Burton Latimer HQ. His colleagues were so impressed that work began on the first Alpen recipe. Launched in 1971, it was the UK’s first Swiss muesli.

Over 45 years on, it remains the nation’s No.1 and has inspired a whole range of other products.
