A Small Potatoes branded promotional vehicle, equipped with a kitchen, will be stopping at eight locations in England, Wales and Scotland throughout October and November.
Promoting healthy eating, the Small Potatoes team will encourage kids to take part in sing-a-longs, games and colouring competitions. Winners will receive customised ‘Photato’ mementos.
The animated show, from Little Airplane Productions, currently airs on CBeebies and features a cast of singing spuds.
Caroline Evans, Potato Council head of marketing and corporate affairs, said: “We’re absolutely delighted to have the stars of Small Potatoes joining our autumn roadshow. As parents are educated about the health benefits of fresh potatoes and inspired with tasty recipes, pre-school children will be entertained by the fun characters – after all it’s never too early to be introduced to the delights of potatoes.”
Josh Selig, president of Little Airplane Productions said: “We are thrilled to be joining forces with Potato Council by taking our Small Potatoes' stars Ruby and Nate out on the road to help encourage families to eat healthily. Any friend of the potato is a friend of mine."
