Harnessing the power of plants, Nivea Men Sensitive Pro features 100% plant-based hemp seed oil.

Olympic gold medallist and SPAR ambassador Kellie Harrington, who has risen to the top of her game by making better choices day after day, today helped launch SPAR’s Better Choices 2022 campaign, with a wide range of healthy choices available now in SPAR stores nationwide. SPAR Better Choices was designed to help the nation choose the best foods for a healthy and balanced lifestyle. SPAR has also carried out research to find out what better choices Irish shoppers are planning to make this year as well as revealing the nation’s favourite foods. A recent study has found that 98% of Irish people plan to make better choices when it comes to looking after themselves in 2022. The main reason for wanting to make better choices was to improve overall health and quality of life, with 44% saying they will prioritise making changes to their diet and eating habits, while a further 44% plan to increase physical activity levels and 12% say they will prioritise their mental health. SPAR ambassador Kellie Harrington is a busy athlete who appreciates the importance of a healthy balanced diet. Speaking at the campaign launch, she said, "I am someone who is always on the move and I know that it can sometimes feel hard to make healthy choices when life feels so busy. SPAR’s Better Choices range is the perfect solution to this, making healthier food and favourite snack choices available across Ireland, without sacrificing on flavour and taste."
