The competition asked primary school children across the borough to design their own healthy school lunch menu, taking into consideration ‘healthy eating choices’.  To help the children think of ideas, representatives from Solutions SK and Stockport County Community Foundation attended several school assembly’s to talk about exercise and food that will help the children with their health, wellbeing, energy and focus.

Whilst choosing the winning menus, (a winner from key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2) the judging panel from Solutions SK and Stockport County Community Foundation were so overwhelmed by the high standard of entries, that they were spoilt for choice.  With this in mind, they decided to also choose three runner-up positions for each Key Stage, to further recognise the hard work that had gone into the entries

Headteacher of St Philips Mrs Hogan, comments “Since the opening of our new kitchen with Solutions SK in March, the children have been given the opportunity to eat healthy, nutritious meals cooked on site by Kim, our wonderful cook. Our ‘Cooking Club’ enables all children to learn how to prepare healthy meals for themselves and their families. This led to a wonderful response to the recent competition and we were absolutely delighted that one of our children was announced a winner, and another was named a runner up!”

Headteacher of St Peters Mrs Finan, comments “We are absolutely delighted that one of our children has won the school menu competition with Solutions SK and Stockport County Community Foundation.  This was a fantastic initiative to engage our children and encourage them think about healthy eating and exercise. The children really enjoyed taking part in such a creative competition and were so excited to find out that we had won.”

The winning menus Eve’s Menu: Baked Chicken with Mash, seasonal vegetables and gravy (gluten free) Tomato and vegetable pasta served with a wholemeal bread roll (v option) Salad Buffet Drinks: Water, milk, Sugar free Blackcurrant/Orange Juice

Desert: Homemade Tropical Fruit Salad, Homemade Fruity Flapjack and low fat yoghurts Why my menu is healthy and why I should win: “My menu contains carbohydrates, protein, vegetables and fruit, all of which give you energy and include all of your recommended 5 a day. None of my menu has been fried and it is all homemade.  I should win because this is a very healthy menu that my friends and I would love and enjoy during school dinner.”

Isabelle’s Menu: Chicken Pasta bake with tomatoes Side dishes of nutritional vegetables, with Desert: Fruit salad frozen yogurt in a biscuit cone. 

Why my menu is healthy and why I should win: “My meal includes a healthy balance of all good groups and great tastes.  I think it would appeal to students who need energy to learn and play.  I also support Stockport County and would love to win.”
