The Original School Food Showdown!Posted on: 01/05/2018
On Tuesday 1st May, Year 7 enjoyed a visit from Chef Ian who delivered a highly interactive Healthy Eating Roadshow, designed especially for schools by the School Food Showdown Company.
The aim of the Roadshow is to change the attitude toward healthy eating and help young people grow into healthy, active and productive young adults. It emphasised the importance of having a healthy breakfast to start the day, what it means to have a healthy balanced diet and how to put together a healthy meal.
The climax of the show was a cook off between pupils in an onstage cooking competition in the style of BBC’s Ready Steady Cook. The 15 minute contest challenged pupils to cook the best balanced healthy meal using a variety of fresh ingredients. Audience members were involved throughout, adopting the roles of Food Critics, Tasters and Judges.
