The Rainbow Fairy - inspiring young people about wellbeing, and encouraging students to develop a broad skill set to help turn their dream career into reality

As a health specialist, Natasha worked on a landmark report (Tackling Obesity in England, 2001) which was when inspiration struck. Several years later Natasha realised this inspiration and she took a brave move to leave behind a highly successful career to follow her dream. Natasha set up a social enterprise aimed at improving children’s understanding, appreciation for and consumption of fruit and veg and has played her own part in tackling childhood obesity levels.

A mother of two young boys, she describes herself as the ‘Fruit and Veg PR Lady’ but to young children across the South East she is known as the 'Rainbow Fairy' (who makes fruit and veg a little bit magical). She is the founder of a theatre-in-education company who brings a high energy, high impact, musical show/workshop into schools.

Natasha’s show has a phenomenal impact on children and uses professional actors to teach why fruit and veg are good for them. It leaves pupils understanding about nutrition and wanting to eat more than their 5 a day!

Natasha’s hard work and determination throughout life has led her on a fascinating and varied journey. She is passionate about everything she has done along this journey and wants to demonstrate that in order to succeed you need a combination of skills that you can acquire throughout your life (starting at school!). She has all the examples to prove that embracing new learning opportunities can lead you to amazing places you couldn’t have predicted.

We hope many other schools will benefit from your amazing assembly and workshops and enjoy the experience as we have. Thanks once again."
