Look after yourself

There's something ironic in the idea of a CD-Rom, however interactive its content, that engrosses children in finding out why they should be up and doing. Join the Activaters manages, none the less, to get its four key messages across in a convincing manner.

Join the Activaters is being distributed by the Food and Drink Federation to 25,000 primary schools.
