I want to work with them to make sure that fewer parents will have to struggle with putting the right kinds of food on the table. I also want to encourage kids to get out there, get active and get fit. “ ”As a dad, I know it is important to give my two-year-old son a healthy life, right from the start, and I want to give all kids that same chance,” added Cristiano. Cristiano, also the captain of the Portuguese national football team, will join Save the Children Ambassadors such as Erin O’Connor, Natasha Kaplinsky and Samantha Cameron in lending his voice and visibility for good.
