Eat like a champ: Team Sky & CNP launch food range

CNP and Team Sky have launched a range of nutritious, high protein breakfast products.

The Team Sky High Protein Porridge and Team Sky High Protein Smoothies have been jointly developed by CNP’s nutrition experts and Team Sky.

Team Sky is well known for looking at every detail that helps deliver the best performances across everything they do. Through working with CNP to launch this range of breakfast products, Team Sky want to share some of what they have learnt and make it available to everyone, in a healthy breakfast option.

Each serving of the High Protein Porridge, which comes in Fig & Honey and Super Fruits flavours, contains 12g of protein and includes fibre in the oats that contribute towards natural maintenance of normal blood cholesterol levels.

The High Protein Smoothies, which are packed with 26g of high quality dairy protein and flavoured with fruit juice, come in Pineapple & Coconut, as well as Orange & Mango flavours.

Nigel Mitchell, Head of Nutrition at Team Sky said: “Breakfast is the most important meal of the day and this innovative range of great-tasting, convenient and widely available products is very exciting. Both the Team Sky Porridge and Smoothie contain a rich source of high quality protein, complex carbohydrates and fibre that will help provide a slow release of energy to keep you energised and feeling fuller for longer.”

Team Sky’s Ben Swift said: “Nutrition is vitally important to us as a team, and as a serious athlete I understand the important role a good source of protein plays in achieving results. I think it’s great that Team Sky and CNP are releasing these products so that everyone can benefit from their knowledge.”

Claire Irvine, Brand Manager at CNP, added: “Having worked with Team Sky since its inception in 2010, it’s an exciting step for us to be taking our combined race nutrition expertise into general superstores across the country, delivering high quality protein to give you a healthy start to the day in an easy and convenient format.”

The “Team Sky High Protein Porridge and “Team Sky High Protein Smoothie” are now available in selected Tesco Superstores and from the CNP website.
