Fun into Food Roadshow

As part of Chartwell’s ‘Added Value for Schools’ programme, the Fun into Food Roadshow came to Allerton Grange on Monday 24 September. The whole Year 7 cohort took part in the event in the main hall, learning more about nutrition through the fun and interactive show.

Students got involved by answering questions on what makes up a healthy and balanced diet, as well as understanding how certain vitamins and minerals help our bodies.

The show, loosely based on a well-known ‘90s cooking programme, saw the Red team compete against the Green team in the cooking challenge. Two students on each team paired up with a teacher; Khlaum and Millie-Rose were on the Green team with Ms Gladwin from Science, Bruce and Sara were on the Red team and Ms Whyman from Technology. The challenge was to create an appetising noodle dish using 5 vegetables and store cupboard ingredients. After some taste-testing from some lucky audience members, the whole year voted for the winners by holding up a coloured card at the end; well done to the Red team!
