‘Coca‑Cola Zero Park Lives’
Coca-Cola very kindly sponsored me to attend Britmums Live and check out their coca-cola park lives initiative. After a very educating lunch we had the opportunity to learn all about what Coca-Cola has in store for us this summer.
Fiona Angus, Manager of Science at Coca-Cola UK was also there to, answering all of our questions.
Coca-Cola Park Lives Campaign
This summer Coca-Cola Zero are launching Coca-Cola Zero Park Lives: a programme of free, fun, family activities in the heart of local communities – the parks!
This Summer Newcastle, London Borough of Newham and Birmingham councils are involved in this scheme. Lot’s more cities will become involved in 2015 and beyond
To encourage people to get active by setting up activities in the local parks and encourage people to join in (check out www.parklives.com for more information and activity timetables)
From Tai chi to Rounders, Zumba to Table Tennis, there’s something for everyone, and the activities on offer have been informed by local research. The sessions will be taken by local session leaders and, what’s more, they’re completely free to join!
Coca- Cola have made a pledge to get one million people active by 2020, and Coca-Cola Park Lives campaign is a key part of this commitment. With Childhood Obesity on the rise this is a much-needed intervention, one I will certainly be getting involved with when it comes to Leeds.
Coca-Cola have devoted a whopping £20 million to reach this goal, their biggest investment to this kind of project to date.
As part of their commitment to encourage active, healthy lifestyles, Coca‑Cola GB supports StreetGames, a UK charity providing sporting opportunities for teenagers in disadvantaged communities across the country
The Coca-Cola and Coca-Cola Zero World Cup promotion packs comes with unique codes to win one of a million limited edition Coca-Cola footballs. And for every valid entry made at www.winaball.co.uk, Coca-Cola will donate 10p to StreetGames.

Announcing Coca Cola Life
Coca-Cola have introduced over a thousand names to take the place of their iconic logo on Coca‑Cola, Diet Coke and Coke Zero products this summer.
You can find the names on individual 375ml and 500ml bottles across the country. Nicknames such as ‘Dad’, ‘Sis’ and ‘Bestie’ will be on 330ml cans, and 1.75L bottles of Coke are perfect for sharing with ‘Mum’ and ‘Dad’.
Here is my special bottle I had made at the Coca-Cola stand at Britmums Live, You can probably guess just how popular this stand was. I chose to have my blog name splashed across a bottle of regular Coca-Cola, I saw many other bloggers doing this too!
Coca-Cola stand at Britmums Live
“I could not write this post without a mention of the Coca-Cola stand at Britmums”.
There was so much to do at the stand, experts on hand to answer any questions us bloggers had, with fun and games galore.
The Share a Coke printing machine was extremely popular as was the try to score a goal to win a football.
Guess what? I even scored the best goal of the day, I was incredibly proud of myself! having two left feet ha!
Coca-Cola is due to launch Glaceau Smart Water this august in the UK. This is a revolutionary product endorsed by stars like Jennifer Aniston in the USA, where this water has been available since 1996. Great Britain are going to be the first in Europe to launch this smart water.
Why is the water so smart?
Because the smart water is made from British spring water, which is vapour distilled before electrolytes are added to make it taste so crisp.
Great Coca- Cola on-line tools
The Coca-Cola website has some really useful on-line Tools
The Work It Out Calculator, Shows you the amount of exercise needed to balance out the calories intake from the drinks in the Coca-cola Great Britain range.
If I drink a regular Coca-Cola, I can burn off the calories by cleaning the windows for 39 minutes or walking the dog for 29 minutes.
The Coca-Cola Caffeine Counter
Developed together with Tommy’s, The Caffeine counter shows you just how much caffeine you take in from various drinks. I was very surprised by the results.
I didn’t realise just how much caffeine I consume through drinking my 10+ cups of tea per day, I think i might have to cut down! This is definitely a tool I would recommend you give a try.
In our home, we all drink Coca-Cola diet, Zero and caffeine free products. We also drink hot drinks, milk, cordials and water.
I believe everything is good in moderation, well apart from chocolate which should have absolutely no limit to it!
Coca-Cola do not market any of there caffeine products to children under 12 years old, nor do they recommend or market energy drinks to the under 16’s.
Coca-cola really do have true family value’s at heart
