Healthy Lunch Challenge - Year 4 Cook Off 2019

Year 4 children took part in the Healthy Lunch Challenge this week, which is also Healthy Eating Week.  Every child had to design a healthy cold lunch for one person within a budget of £4.00, as part of their homework.  14 entries out of the whole year group were chosen to go through to the final 'Cook Off'.  The standard of the entries was extremely high.  All the children did a fantastic job, as you can see from the photos, which made it an extremely tough job for the judges.


In first place was Vasilia Constantinou (4KD) with her Scrumptious Summertime Surprise, Lilly Christodoulou (4KD) came second with her Pitta Surprise, Berry Delight and Cucumber Water, in third place was Polly Hancox (4KD) with her Fresh Spring Rolls and Mango Sorbet and Aiza Tahir (4D) came fourth with her Smoked Tikka Bolti Roll, Kanchumber Salad, Mint Chutney and Vermicelli Nest on a Mint Tree.

Vasilia, 1st prize and Lilly, 2nd prize winners had their Healthy Lunch put on the school menu last week. Here are some photos of our amazing winners.
