Kellogg New Zealand and Paralympics New Zealand have teamed up to ensure Para athletes can start their day with a taste of home during the Tokyo 2021 Paralympic Games.
For the health, wellbeing and safety of their Para athletes, Paralympics NZ has engaged with Kellogg to provide a range of breakfast cereals and snacks to be enjoyed during the Paralympic Games in Tokyo.
The 29 Paralympians and Para athletes are extremely excited to be heading to the Paralympic Games after Covid-19 postponed the event in 2020. Many of the Para athletes have not competed out of NZ for a few years, and they're looking forward doing their best in Tokyo.
Heidi Wilde, funding and partnership manager at Paralympics New Zealand, says they are grateful to partner with Kellogg to provide Para athletes with the comforts of home.
"It's always good to have familiar food from home," she said. "For Para athletes, it's important to have a healthy start to the day.
"With all the Covid-19 restrictions and precautions at this Paralympic Games, it is so helpful for the Para athletes to have supplies available within the New Zealand Paralympic Team apartments."
Kellogg has supplied more than 900 breakfast meals and a range of pre-event and snack options for the 65 individuals heading to Tokyo, including Para athletes and support staff.
