Describe the objective of the promotion.
All adults know: healthy eating is important. The organic supermarket chain Fresh'N'Friends benefits from that situation. There is just one small problem: kids hate healthy food but they love sweets. Actually, that´s even a big problem. In Germany every fifth child is overweight. And worst of all: kids won´t listen to logical arguments. Therefore, our task was to convince the kids without lecturing them.

Describe how the promotion developed from concept to implementation.
Instead of calling attention to that problem with a traditional ad campaign we chose to solve the problem. The solution was a new product: fruit figures. To make fruits as appealing as sweets we transformed boring fruits into funny motifs that suit children. And put them into the stores. Additionally, they were promoted with advertising – direct mailings, email newsletters and posters.
To involve the kids, a contest was started. Kids designed their own fruit figures. All ideas were published and judged online. The figure with the most votes was added to the product range.

Explain why the method of promotion was most relevant to the product or service.
Instead of trying to convince kids with arguments (a fight parents have unsuccesfully almost daily) we simply give them what they want: fruits arranged in shape of teddy bears, kittens or flowers – all the things kids love. So kids eat healthier, because they love it. And parents love it too because they don´t have to convince their kids anymore to eat healthier.

Describe the success of the promotion with both client and consumer including some quantifiable results.
During the first month, Fresh'N'Friends has already sold twice as much fruit as before. Even the contest was a big success. Over 3,500 ideas from children all over Germany were submitted. The rabbit figure of 5-year-old Dario Lefevre from Berlin got the most votes and was therefore added to the fruit product range. Press reactions pushed the awareness level of the fruit figures additionally. And Fresh'N'Friends got almost 100 thank-you letters from parents. But most importantly, kids eat healthier now. Because they love it.
